Public Support for Healthcare Reform Drops Even More


“A bare majority of Americans still believe government action is needed to control runaway health-care costs and expand coverage to the roughly 46 million people without insurance. But after a year of exhortation by President Obama and Democratic leaders and a high-octane national debate, there is minimal public enthusiasm for the kind of comprehensive changes in health care now under consideration. There are also signs the political fight has hurt the president’s general standing with the public.” (Washington Post, Wednesday)

That’s the polite way to put it.
