You -- polling now finds a sizable number of Americans feeling uneasy about their health care under obamacare.
Two out of three Americans saying that they're worried about their health care under the new law and expect their medical costs to go even higher.
Just about 43% say they have no words Don -- was an advisor to President Bill Clinton and Monica Crowley radio talk show host.
Both are Fox News contributors and good morning good morning I don't say here we go guys.
In the fall of this year than kick -- in January 1 of 2014.
Monica what's that number tell you.
Well it shows that people are actually -- are really focused on what this legislation means for them and their lives and their health care.
At the time passage Democrat senator Chuck Schumer said the more people have got to know obamacare the more they're really going to love it because this thing is fantastic.
And actually be exact opposite has been true.
Now that -- several years into this law now that is really going to start to kick in people are focusing on what it means and what it means bill.
Is higher taxes higher premiums less access to medical care and doctors and of course the -- of of Medicare which they did to pay for this monstrosity.
-- -- people are really taking a look at what is going to mean for them personally they're starting to really worry about it and that's what you see also the accompanying number.
That shows that about two thirds of the American people want this thing either out repealed either totally or in part.
Argued that the moment but if all that's true that number's -- -- -- -- -- -- showed you there.
Yes exactly Doug what do you think about that well.
This is an election issue for the Republicans is what won the 2010 election for the Republicans.
Stimulated the Tea Party movement.
And I would tell you that.
While the president's ratings have dropped a bit bill if the Republicans are gonna have a break -- and there are negatives notwithstanding all the problems for the administration.
Are higher than the Democrats if they're gonna make a case for the Republicans they need a positive alternative.
To Obama care to take advantage of what minors and young in the fall 2014.
Is a big deal.
It's a -- gets a big deal now but it's a bigger deal as we approach the election as it was in 2000.
Monica you were just referring you this about repeal about numbers got up nine points and a couple months on the screen for our viewers.
In march of 2013.
At 30% see the top line far right.
And repeal entirely now.
Yeah that's stunning and actually when you folds in people who want it repealed at least in part it's up to 58%.
This this Obama care legislation has never been popular it's always been highly unpopular.
But again as we get closer to full implementation in the American people are starting to say well wait -- -- -- What is is gonna mean for me I'm not going to be able to keep my doctor may be my employer -- It's gonna ditch the insurance that I currently have -- thought the president told me I could keep the insurance that I -- if I liked it.
All of these things are turning out to be false promises and.
Untrue it seems that people are confused.
I think everybody can agree on -- -- even congressional report Democrats.
We're telling Kathleen Sebelius what they're hearing from seniors is that they're confused about the health care all I -- I don't know how their lives again.
Strange right and and with uncertainty for seniors -- steer.
Young people are worried that they will face penalties or more expensive insurance and the other issue is their health care exchanges which the president -- Democrats -- have not been quick to be set up in the number of options offered is much more limited in a lot of states then some would want bottom line uncertainty creates fear and fear created -- Can you explain this -- -- Doug by saying it's just the growing pains of a new big law.
What you you can say that the problem is look I'm a Democrat ice favor and support.
Expansion of health care much more I am certain then Monica what.
But this law is too big too -- shouldn't have not done incrementally should have been insurance purchasing across state lines tort reform.
And the absence of those features.
Means that the fears a very real.
And you know what it's more than growing pains -- -- And you know what just on the the issue of fear villain -- the fact that the IRS.
Which is deeply mired in its own corruption and scandals about targeting conservatives.
The fact that that agency is going to be the enforcer of our health care and we're gonna have to prove to the IRS.
That we of government sanctioned health insurance as of January 1.
I think that instills a lot of fear and terror -- There's a huge issue for the republic it's a huge issue to and it's a big wrinkle in this -- it is.
Monica Doug thank you in the coming months we have much more opportunity talk about this.
Thanks to both you and -- happy birth thank you so I think I think I would say they are all day long do you sense.
