Taxpayers Will Pay the Price for Uncertainty Over Obamacare in 2018
Almost eight in 10, including about half of Trump supporters, say the president and his GOP allies should make the current health care law work, according to a Kaiser poll being released Friday.
Nearly 6 in 10 people think the Republicans should work with Democrats to improve the health law.
After the Senate's failure to pass legislation to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, the latest Kaiser Health Tracking Poll finds that eight in 10 Americans (78%) say President Trump and his administration should do what they can to make the current health care law work.
President Trump has threatened to cancel the payments, known as cost-sharing reductions, which reimburse insurers for giving discounted deductibles and copays to low-income people.
By almost 2-to-1, poll respondents said it's good that the repeal-and-replace bill failed, and about 4 in 5 respondents want the White House and Republicans to focus on making the ACA better, the Associated Press reported.

Most insurers reacted to this uncertainty in one of two ways: They either factored them directly into their initial rate requests, or noted in their filings that they'd raise their rates-or exit the marketplaces-if either the mandate isn't enforced or the CSR payments aren't made. Three in 10 (31%) support President Trump using whatever tactics are necessary to encourage Democrats to start negotiating. Most of those who say it is a good thing say they do not want the law repealed at all (34% of the public overall), while fewer (23% of the public overall) say it is because they had concerns with the specific bill being debated.
"The Trump administration is committed to repealing and replacing Obamacare and will always be focused on putting patients, families, and doctors, not Washington, in charge of health care", Marre said in a statement. There has been a 9-percentage-point increase in people who hold a favorable view since November.
"Other insurers state that if they do not get clarity by the time rates must be finalized - which is August 16 for the federal marketplace - they may either increase their premiums further or withdraw from the market", the study's authors wrote.
