Poll shows continued opposition to ObamaCare and amnesty
The signature issues of the Obama administration have been ObamaCare and the President’s unilateral action to grant de facto amnesty to many illegal aliens, but the policies remain unpopular according to a poll conducted by The Conservative Caucus.
The poll showed 96 percent giving support to proposed legislation that would repeal ObamaCare’s Independent Payment Advisory Board, which has the task of diverting funds from Medicare to ObamaCare programs.
The two issues converged in a question about the combined effect on health care of amnesty and ObamaCare, as millions of now-illegal aliens would become eligible for government taxpayer-subsidized health care. This “deeply concerned” 96 percent of respondents.
Although much of the poll was bad news for Obama, House Republicans were also put on warning. Only 12 percent thought that the GOP leadership could be trusted to oppose amnesty, while 88 percent disagreed.
The Conservative Caucus is a grass roots public policy action organization, formed in 1974. It was active in defeating the SALT II Treaty, repealing the Catastrophic Coverage Act, blocking the Clinton health-care takeover, impeaching President Clinton, and stopping amnesty for illegal aliens.
