Americans are just as split on their opinion of the health care reform law as they were two years ago when the law passed.
According to an AP-GfK poll, 35 percent support the law, while 47 percent oppose it. However, Americans are less fearful of the law than they were two years ago.
Shortly after the law passed in 2010, 47 percent said they expected the quality of their health care to worsen. In 2012, just 32 percent said they worry about the law’s impact on care quality. The number of Americans who expect their care to increase remains at 14 percent.
On March 23 the law will celebrate its two-year anniversary, and on the following Monday the Supreme Court will hear arguments on the constitutionality of the law.
