Americans unhappy about healthcare law

NEW YORK, Nov. 18 (UPI) -- A poll shows most respondents believe healthcare will become more expensive because of President Obama's healthcare law.

The Angus Reid Public Opinion online poll of 1,000 American adults found 48 percent of respondents are dissatisfied with the healthcare legislation, with just 36 percent saying they are satisfied.


The poll said the number of "strongly dissatisfied" responders outnumber those who are "strongly satisfied" 3-to-1.

It said 80 percent of Republicans surveyed are unhappy with the legislation, while 62 percent of the Democrats surveyed are content.

There was little change on two other questions the organization has tracked throughout the year.

The poll found 56 percent of those asked said they believe healthcare costs will continue to rise and 42 percent of responders said they think the quality of healthcare will decline as a result of the new legislation.
