Poll: Americans skittish over health changes

USA Today, October 21, 2009

Americans are increasingly worried about the cost and quality of medical care that could result from President Obama's effort to revamp healthcare, but a majority still trust him more than Republicans to change the system, a USA Today/Gallup Poll shows. The poll finds that people who fear their costs would increase under the measure jumped 7 percentage points since last month, to 49%. There were similar increases among those who believe that both quality of healthcare and insurance company red tape will get worse if legislation passes.
