For years the GOP has vowed to repeal the Affordable Care Act. Last week Mr Trump vowed “the people will never be ignored again”. As of today’s Quinnipiac University National Poll the people have spoken:
“Only 16 percent of voters say President Donald Trump and Republicans in Congress should repeal all of the ACA, while 51 percent say repeal parts of the law and 30 percent say don’t repeal any of the ACA, the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University Poll finds.”
Here’s the visual depiction of the Quinnipiac survey results:
No genius required to see the two positions are mutually exclusive. Either the GOP/Trump combo can ignore the people, or ignore their long-term vow to repeal the ACA.
While we’re here, they also asked several questions regarding Planned Parenthood funding and abortion.
“In a question with no mention of abortion, American voters oppose 62 – 31 percent cutting off federal funding to Planned Parenthood.”
And they found “American voters agree 70 – 26 percent with the U.S. Supreme Court Roe v. Wade decision.”
What’s it going to be: The people, or the ideology.
