The latest Rasmussen poll of likely voters shows that, by a margin of 17 points (55 to 38 percent), Americans want Obamacare to be repealed. It’s not hard to tell why: By a margin of 32 points (49 to 17 percent), Americans think Obamacare would reduce, rather than improve, the quality of health care. By a margin of 40 points (56 to 16 percent), they think it would raise, rather than lower, health costs.  And by a margin of 41 points (54 to 13 percent), they think it would raise, rather than lower, deficits.

Perhaps delaying the implementation of Obamacare — say, until 2017 — should be a bigger part of the debt ceiling negotiations.
