Fretting about health care

A whopping 81% of Californians think government should be responsible for ensuring everyone has health care, according to a Field Poll released today, which shows the increasing nervousness about eroding health coverage.

Other interesting stats:

  • 39% report being “very concerned” that they or someone close to them will
    be without coverage
  • 77% agree that as many people need to be insured as possible
  • 65% blame profit-driven insurance and drug companies for high costs

It’s the first of two polls specifically about voter attitudes toward health care. The second, to be publicly released tomorrow, promises to be interesting also.

Health Access California promotes quality, affordable health care for all Californians.
