Four in 10 Americans Unaware PPACA Is Law of the Land

April’s tracking poll by the Kaiser Family Foundation (KFF) reveals 42 percent of Americans surveyed are unaware the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) is the law of the land. Seven percent think the Supreme Court overturned the PPACA, while 12 percent believe Congress repealed the law. Those percentages increase for young adults between 18 and 29 years old and for households with annual income less than $30,000.

Nearly half of respondents (49 percent) say they don’t know enough about the law to determine how it will affect their family. What they do know they learned through conversations with friends and family (40 percent) or through newspapers, radio, and online news outlets (36 percent). Only a small minority report getting information on the PPACA from their doctor (11 percent) or from a  federal or state agency (9 and 8 percent, respectively).
