Poll: Support for government health insurance declines a bit
Public support for universal health insurance is declining, according the latest New York Times/CBS News Poll. About half (51%) said the federal government should guarantee health insurance for all Americans, down slightly from 55% in July and 64% in June. Support for universal health insurance drops to 38% if it is suggested that the cost of health insurance would increase, and to 36% if taxes went up. In addition, only 33% said the United States should guarantee health insurance for all its citizens if the federal budget deficit would increase as a result.
