Health reform law now viewed more positively
The Kaiser Family Foundation's June tracking poll found that 48 percent of Americans surveyed had a somewhat favorable or very favorable opinion of the health reform bill passed in March. That was an increase from the previous month when 41 percent of those surveyed said they viewed the law favorably. Forty-one percent said they held a very unfavorable or somewhat unfavorable view of the act passed with no Republican support in congress and signed into law by President Obama. And 27 percent supported a repeal of the law, formally known as "the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act."
