Letter: Popular Opinion About Obamacare
To the Editor:
Linn Harwell’s excellent letter pointing out some of the laudable provisions of Obamacare (“Understanding a Complex Law,” July 25) unfortunately opens with the mantra that the “measure remains unpopular.”
Actually, responses to surveys about the law’s popularity divide into three compartments. A minority wants the act to be repealed. A majority is comprised of two components. One group approves of the law as is. A second group believes it doesn’t go far enough and should one day be replaced (as in Europe, Canada, Australia, etc.) with a single-payer, low-overhead plan that provides universal coverage, like Medicare.
