Meanwhile our new fox polling shows that 54% say they want the law repealed.
Which is mostly unchanged from what we found about two years ago at 56%.
Stephen Moore senior economic writer Wall Street -- -- here to go into this is even if you write a lot about this law and it came up yesterday the press conference.
Some questions some answers.
Perhaps some clarifications.
Can can perhaps more confusion take poll number one for intent unaware of the current status what does that suggest.
What what it means -- is the American people here we -- really remember when Nancy Pelosi famously said when she was speaker will read the bill.
-- after we pass it well here we are three years later.
And the American people really don't know much about this bill even though health care is you know 17 power of our economy the American people don't know what's in the bill.
They don't know how it's paid for and most importantly -- they were very concerned about how it's going to affect their own individual health insurance plan.
-- to that point you have this question about repeal.
And what we find 54% now is 56% Jack in.
January 2000 elevenths those come down two points in two years and here's here's that you believe that the more people -- find out about this it becomes less popular.
Coach would -- just -- that number goes higher now why do you believe that.
Well because remember.
One of the things that President Obama said.
Back in the debate in 2009 about about a -- -- repeated this yesterday bill as you know if you like the health insurance you have now legal never lose that well.
Actually it turns out that because of the way that the -- care system -- structure.
Against employers a lot of them and this is starting now small employers especially -- Are dropping their employer health care plan.
And putting their employees and what's called the Obama care pool which is more of a government run insurance system you know what -- workers are saying you know we don't want to be in that system we want the system that we've got now and I think that's reflected in some of these negative attitudes that you see in today's -- I think.
Max Baucus a democratic senator really raise some eyebrows he said this about a week ago -- I just see huge train wreck come on you know I've discussed this many times and I don't see any results yet.
Look you know what can -- that help for all these people around the country where what world we're doing with.
But I know what to do.
He is the word train wreck and his questioner.
But you have -- -- significant dates on the calendar that are coming up -- as October.
That's when the uninsured to start applying for new enrollment every cent tracks the country then you have another date in the first of January 2014.
When the thirty million uninsured eventually are expected -- coverage.
Now I mean that's right you know.
Pair that with how Max Baucus now sees this law being implemented and would get well tell you this.
Bill Max Baucus didn't make a lot of friends in the White House when he said that it was kind of a moment of truth when he said this is a -- -- and you know what this actually.
Ties into what you were talking to Stuart Varney about -- terms of the lousy jobs numbers because one of the aspects of this bill that is unpopular especially with small business man and woman as.
You know you've got this threshold if you hire more than fifty workers all of these no obamacare regulations which are very expensive just for small businesses they'll all of those regulations take a fact that so if your behavior of the -- forty niner.
Bill that -- dollars and -- are always right that's right those are -- that are.
That what that means is firms are capping their employment at 49 workers they're not hiring that fiftieth worker bill and the reason they're not as because -- they do once they go over fifty.
All of those new regulations which make it very expensive to run your business take a back and I can't tell you how many small businessman and woman I talked to retailers' orders of you know mcdonalds and burger kings of sand where can happen at 49 so that's a big problem -- because of what that means is it's it's it.
The obamacare bill may actually add to the unemployment problem yes or no.
Do they have time to get the kinks worked out.
Or not I.
You know I don't think so I think this bill is so structurally flawed.
You may have to get rid of a -- there a couple of issues that are popular with this like that preexisting conditions that you get an insurance for about.
But most of the law's provisions are turning out to be pretty unpopular with the American people Stephen thank you Wall Street Journal we'll go through more as we go along thank you -- -- --
