Americans have gotten pretty riled up about the Affordable Care Act and have not been shy about expressing their opinions.
Health insurance has never brought more drama to daytime T.V.!
As impassioned as people can be about the subject, there is a vast sector of the population that frankly has no idea what is going on.
A recent survey by Pew Research Center found some rather “enlightening” stats about how much our country knows about the health reform ruling. Obviously, readers of the
GoHealth “Coverage Corner” blog are super knowledgeable about current events and health reform. But, in case you’re wondering about rest of the nation:
- 15 percent of Americans surveyed thought that most of the law had been struck down
- 30 percent of Americans simply had no idea what the Supreme Court’s ruling was
The age group that knew the least about the ruling was young adults, age 18-29. This won’t do anything for the reputation of America’s youth! Take a look:
- Two out of three people age 18 to 29 thought that the Supreme Court had either struck down the ACA or just had no idea there was a ruling had been made
- 43 percent of people 18 to 29 admitted they had no idea what the ruling was.
- 37 percent of people 18 to 29 were well-informed and knew that the majority of the law had been upheld.
