A majority of Americans blame Donald Trump’s administration for any future problems with Obamacare, a new poll has found.
Carried out by the Kaiser Family Foundation, it found 61 per cent of respondents believe the US President and his Republican Party are responsible for any issues with the Affordable Care Act (ACA).
Only 37 per cent said Barack Obama's administration - who introduced it in 2010 - would be at fault for fewer enrollments.
Although Republican efforts to repeal and replace the ACA have failed, the party’s actions have been blamed for forcing prices for Obamacare plans up in 2018.
The Trump administration slashed the Obamacare budget for advertising by 90 per cent and significantly reduced spending on groups that help customers find the appropriate insurance plan.
The 2018 open enrolment period for the health insurance exchange is also only running for six weeks, which is half as long as last year.
Analysts say these measures increase the likelihood of less people signing up to the ACA.
Good, I am glad that most Americans are seeing through the Republican's bullshit.
And it is important to remind people that EVERY SINGLE problem that happens with health care in this country moving forward is directly the fault of this administration.
You can bet your ass that if Hillary Clinton had been elected that she would have been working to make Obamacare function better, not trying to destroy it from within.
