Analysis: Survey Shows A Nation Divided Over Health Care Law
By Larry Kane
PHILADELPHIA (CBS)– As the United States Supreme Court gets ready to rule on the health care law, Americans have chimed in with their views in a new CBS News national survey.
It is a nation divided on the health care law. The new survey shows 41 percent of the people want the high court to throw out the entire law. Only 24 percent want to keep it all. And 27 percent want to keep the law, but throw out the mandate that everyone has to buy insurance.
This survey shows questions about the Supreme Court itself. It shows 55 percent believe the court will make its choice for political reasons. And 6 in 10 Americans believe members of the court should not be appointed for life.
The court’s decision is expected in the next two weeks. Whatever the court decides, the survey shows there will be a lot of disappointed people.
