With Two Weeks To Go Before Sign-up for Exchanges, Obamacare Still a Tough Sell
As the health care exchanges at the heart of the law open for enrollment in two weeks, the public's views of it are as negative as they have ever been, and disapproval of the president's handling of health care has hit a new high.
