New Poll: Obamacare Tax Set To Go Into Effect January 1 Deeply Unpopular

A new survey released today showed little support for the previously delayed Obamacare taxes set to go into effect January 1, 2018.

The poll, conducted by the Winston Group, found only 1 in 5 voters believed Congress should allow these new taxes, which would range from 4 to 6 percent on every plan sold, go into effect. The Washington Examiner had an exclusive look at the poll.

A survey released exclusively to the Washington Examiner by the Winston Group, which conducted the research among 1,000 registered voters over the phone from Nov. 14-15, found 58 percent of respondents favored suspending the tax for 2018. Twenty-one percent opposed it and 20 percent replied, “Don’t know,” though most (61 percent) also said they had not “seen, read, or heard, anything” about it.

Sen. Cory Gardner (R-CO), along with other GOP senators, has proposed delaying this tax for one year.

“We need to look at every avenue we can to provide relief to the American people from the high costs created by the Affordable Care Act,” Gardner said in September. “My legislation delays a tax that once implemented would lead to even higher costs of care for Coloradans.”
