Despite distaste for health law, Americans oppose defunding

NPR, August 29, 2013
Opponents of the Affordable Care Act often talk about. And this from the Kaiser Family Foundation bears them out. Negative views of the law (42 percent) top positive ones (37 percent). But Republicans who have been this month to garner support for defunding the law when Congress returns from its summer break might want to look at another part of the poll. The unpopularity of the law with many Americans doesn't mean they necessarily support starving it of money. In fact, 57 percent of respondents said they disapproved of cutting off funding to the law as a way of blocking its implementation.
