Poll: Half prefer ObamaCare over GOP health bill

Twice as many Americans prefer ObamaCare over the GOP's healthcare bill, a new poll released Monday finds. 

The Washington Post/ABC News poll shows 50 percent prefer ObamaCare, while 24 percent prefer the GOP's plan. Thirteen percent like neither. 

Only 59 percent of Republicans support their party's proposal, the poll found, while 11 percent support ObamaCare. The other 30 percent say they have no preference. 

Sixty-three percent of the public say it's more important for the government to provide healthcare to low-income people rather than cutting taxes. 

The Senate GOP's healthcare plan repeals the majority of ObamaCare's taxes, except for two placed on high earners. At the same time, it rolls back the federal government's funding of the ObamaCare Medicaid expansion, which helped an additional 15 million low-income people in 31 states purchase health insurance. 

Senate GOP leaders hoped to vote this week on their healthcare bill but postponed it while Sen.

Moderates are concerned that the most recent draft of the bill did nothing to address cuts to Medicaid and the rollback of the expansion program.
