Majority of Americans Reject Law on Health Care

A poll suggests most Americans oppose the reform of the health insurance law proposal of President Barack Obama, despite their strong support of most of the articles of the law. Reuters-Ipsos poll was conducted last week.

The Supreme Court is expected to announce his decision on a challenge to the initiative of the president's health insurance proposal Thursday.

Core of the Patient Protection Act and Affordable Care, the so-called "Obamacare" by its critics lies in the individual mandate. Mandate that requires every American has health insurance, starting in 2014, or could be fined.

Reuters poll showed 61 percent of Americans oppose the mandate, while 39 percent support it. The opponents of the prevailing health insurance program now says the government can not require people to buy insurance and believe the government will intervene in the decisions of individual doctors and treatments.

The survey says support for other aspects of Obama's health care program is quite strong.

- 82 percent of respondents supported a ban on insurance companies refuse to insure people who had been suffering from certain diseases;

- 61 percent support the provisions that allow children to remain as dependents in their parents' insurance until age 26;

- 72 percent support the provision that requires companies with more than 50 employees to provide insurance for their employees.

Mitt Romney, Republican presidential nominee, has promised to overturn the law that if she beat Obama in the upcoming November election. Romney called for a bipartisan effort to fix what is wrong in law that the American health insurance.

President Obama, who said he was imitating the reform was based on a health insurance plan endorsed Romney when he was governor of the state of Massachusetts, defended the legalization of medical insurance reform it.
