More than three years after President Barack Obama signed the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, public confusion about the 2010 healthcare reform law is widespread, according to a survey released Tuesday.
Forty-two percent of those surveyed by the Kaiser Family Foundation didn't know the status of the law, answered incorrectly when asked about PPACA's status or declined to respond. Some 59% answered correctly that PPACA is the law of the land and is being implemented.
For example, 12% of respondents said the law was repealed by Congress. While the House of Representatives last year passed a repeal measure, the Senate did not act on the proposal.
