Americans Don’t Know What They Want from the Health Care Bill

A majority of Americans want to repeal the health care law, but 4/5 major platforms are very popular. The only one Americans want reformed is the one that controls cost.

So a conundrum for governing:

How do you proceed with a law that is not popular, but is popular? How do you proceed with lowering health care costs for consumers and the government long-term when the only way to do so effectively in a non-single payer system is inherently unpopular?

Another tricky example of Americans wanting the benefits of socialism and the financial burdens of libertarians. We are a bunch of children.

A follow-up question for this poll should be: Which would you rather have: The benefits and the insurance requirement or nothing (the old, more expensive status quo). Tough to call how it would come out.
