Most Americans want healthcare reform

HealthDay/Washington Post, August 8, 2008

The vast majority of Americans are dissatisfied with the U.S. healthcare system, and 82% think it needs to be overhauled, according to a survey commissioned by The Commonwealth Fund. The survey, titled Public Views on U.S. Health Care System Organization: A Call for New Directions, questioned 1,004 adults on their views of the U.S. healthcare system. Nine out of 10 people surveyed said the presidential candidates should propose reforms that would improve the quality of healthcare, ensure that all Americans have affordable care, and reduce the number of uninsured.
