Fifty-two percent agree that the law is fundamentally flawed and will do more harm to the country’s health care system than good, while 46 percent say it’s experiencing temporary problems and ultimately will produce a better health care system for the country, according to the United Technologies/National Journal Congressional Connection Poll.
