Poll shows growing fears on healthcare overhaul

USA Today, January 26, 2010

Fears about President Barack Obama's healthcare overhaul increased significantly in December, according to a new poll released by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. The poll measured consumers' views of how reform would affect their own finances and access to care, among other things. The survey shows a majority are following the healthcare debate in Congress, and 33% of respondents said they believed their access to care would be worse if a healthcare overhaul occurred. That is a jump from 25% in a poll released last month.
