Most Californians worried about Obama Care repeal

Most Californians worried about Obama Care repeal
- Findings from the poll by the UC Berkeley's Institute of Governmental Studies (IGS) were released Tuesday, at a time when the Congress in the national capital of Washington D.C. now is considering legislation to repeal and replace the ACA, popularly known as Obama Care, after former U.S. President Barack Obama, who signed the national health reform legislation into law in 2010.
Among those who are worried about the future of the ACA, 39 percent say they are "very worried" and 17 percent say they are "somewhat worried."
Concern about losing health coverage varies with household income. Of residents at the lowest end of the income scale, namely less than 20,000 U.S. dollars per year, 77 percent are worried, as are 81 percent of those currently covered by Medi-Cal, the state-wide public program that provides health coverage to low-income adults and children.
