The House GOP keeps trying and trying (what is it, 40 times now?) to repeal and/or defund the Affordable Care Act, knowing their pathetic efforts will go nowhere, and also knowing they're doing it for purely political reasons. Appealing to conservatives so they won't get primaried by right wing extremists is their priority, not what voters may actually want, not what's good for the health and welfare of Americans.
Via a new Kaiser poll:
Still, a majority of Americans (57 percent) say they disapprove of the idea of cutting off funding as a way to stop the law from being implemented, a finding that has been consistent in Kaiser Health Tracking Polls since January 2011. Republicans and those with an unfavorable view of the law overall are more likely to approve of attempts to defund the ACA, but even among these groups, about a third (34 percent and 33 percent, respectively) say they disapprove.
