Most Voters Say HC Reforms Should be Scrapped

Ad Feedback

A new poll by Zogby International and the University of Texas Health Science Center shows most Americans want Congress to scrap its comprehensive health care reform bills and start over.

According to the poll, 57 percent say Congress should start from scratch. It's a move some Republicans are urging President Barack Obama to take.

"Americans don't want another 2,700-page bill that raises taxes and slashes Medicare for our seniors," said Don Stewart, spokesman for Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky.

In addition, 56 percent want legislators to take a more incremental approach to reform, rather than push through a sweeping overhaul.

The poll also shows Americans are more concerned about jobs and reducing government spending than reforming health care.

The survey, the largest of its type conducted this year, is based on interviews with approximately 4,000 adults nationwide.
