This Sunday marks the fourth anniversary of the Affordable Care Act becoming law – and the public has almost never been more bored with health care news.
The public's attention to health care has fallen off sharply since the all the technology problems nearly doomed HealthCare.gov and the president's health care program, according to a new Pew Research Center report.
Just 23 percent of those surveyed in March said that they were "closely tracking" health care news, which is down from 33 percent in November 2013. Before that, interest in health care news had been steadily dropping off since the Supreme Court's June 2012 decision on Obamacare.
The findings suggest that people accept that the law, for better or worse, isn't going anywhere. Negative opinion on the law has hardly budged since President Barack Obama signed it March 23, 2010. But the poll found that Democrats and Independents want officials to make the law "work as well as possible," instead of working to make it fail. Republicans are almost evenly split on this point, with 43 percent in the "make it fail" crowd versus 40 percent on the "fix it" side.
There's still a whole lot of noise around the health care law - and that includes last-minute messaging to sign up for coverage by March 31. Polls like this one make you wonder how much people are even listening.
