Americans Want to Lower Health Care Costs


No kidding, right? But here is the interesting part: They are willing to accept trade-offs for lower health care costs — like more government control over plan particulars:

A new national poll indicates that most Americans are receptive to having more government influence over their health care in return for lower costs and more coverage.Sixty-three percent of people questioned in a CNN/Opinion Research Corp. survey released Friday said they would favor an increase in the federal government’s influence over their own health-care plans in an attempt to lower costs and provide coverage to more Americans; 36 percent were opposed.

The poll also suggests that slightly more than six out of 10 think the government should guarantee health care for all Americans, with 38 percent opposed.
