Poll: More Americans Getting Behind Health Care Reform
The new poll, conducted by the non-partisan Kaiser Family Foundation, found that 46 percent of Americans support the health reform bills moving on Capitol Hill, while 42 percent oppose them. Furthermore:
Six in 10 Americans say they have heard little or nothing about budget reconciliation. And many people continue to struggle with health costs, with nearly one in five saying cost increases have caused them or their employer to switch to a less comprehensive health plan.
Like yesterday’s CBO score, the figures fly directly in the face of Republican talking points, which claim that the Democrats’ reform bills not only would add to deficits, but are grossly unpopular among Americans.
