Most in PA oppose repeal of Obamacare

11.01.13 | Bob Price

Pennsylvania voters oppose repeal of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, known as Obamacare, by a 50-40 percent margin, a statewide poll shows.  The poll of 628 registered voters by Franklin & Marshall College found substantial support for Medicaid expansion, which the law allowed as a choice for states in a 2012 U.S. Supreme Court ruling. Those surveyed favor providing Medicaid coverage to poor, uninsured people by almost two-thirds. The survey shows only 40 percent of Pennsylvanians have any knowledge about how Obamacare works. Only 13 percent signed up for insurance or attempted to do so.
