Americans oppose yanking healthcare law funds: poll
Most Americans do not want Congress to block funding for various new healthcare measures even as the nation remains split on the sweeping overhaul passed last year, a poll published on Tuesday found. More than half of those surveyed — 62% — said they did not approve of lawmakers cutting off funds needed to implement changes, which range from new rules for health insurance companies to tax credits for small businesses and state grants. Thirty-three percent said they backed funding attacks, according to the poll by the Kaiser Family Foundation and Harvard School of Public Health.
