Americans Want Trump to Fix Obamacare

79%

A new ABC News-Washington Post poll finds just 37% of Americans say Obamacare should be repealed and replaced; 61% say it should be kept and fixed instead. Even more broadly, the public by 79% to 13% says Trump should seek to make the current law work as well as possible, not to make it fail as soon as possible, a strategy he’s suggested.

What You Asked For

Obama didn’t like it when the GOP named it “Obamacare.”
Trump doesn’t like it now Dems call his “Trumpcare.”

Who voted for Trump that fateful day,
The GOP’s repeal and replace should be renamed “Chumpcare.”

Rand Paul just mounted an invasion
With media alerted to the occasion.
He charged ‘cross the Hill
To wrest free the Obamacare bill,
But ’twas gone — though Rand Paul was not chastened.

Whereas the Republican approach is understated.
In a month he’s learned one lesson,
And about this he ain’t jestin':
It’s that healthcare reform is really “complicated.”
