As the elections get closer for the new presidential office, Democrats see their support going down for the health reform laws passed in 2010. Many Republicans are trying to repeal the law even before they take office. Countless states have tried fighting the reform laws in the state courts, claiming that the new legislation is unconstitutional. More than half of Americans view the law unfavorably after a recent poll in October. Only 34 percent view the health reform laws favorably.
Even among Democrats, only 52 percent view the law beneficial and say that some good will come out of it. This is a big concern for Democrats, especially as the elections get closer. Democrats were hoping that people would realize the good the reform laws has been doing for the past year. It has helped many seniors with getting them better care, and also getting Americans better prescription drugs benefits on their health insurance plans. We still have to wait and see if the health reform laws will actually make health insurance more affordable.
