The Affordable Care Act hits its third anniversary at the end of this week. It has survived a Supreme Court ruling and a presidential election. None of that seems to have tamped down Republican voters' desire to see the law repealed.
A new poll from McLaughlin & Associates, conducted for the Young Guns Network, finds that 32 percent of respondents wants to see the Affordable Care Act repealed. That number stands at 59 percent among self-identified Republican voters.
Twenty-six percent of Republican voters, meanwhile, supported changing the Affordable Care Act in some way.
Still, repeal rhetoric exists: You saw it last week, when House Budget Chairman Paul Ryan introduced a budget that would, among other things, repeal the health law (at least its new spending, if not its tax cuts). Even if repeal attempts are, essentially, dead on arrival, there's still reason for Republicans to keep the discussion alive: their voters.
