The administration’s biggest current economic initiative, a retooling of the U.S. health care system, is now drawing increasing criticism as well. Fifty-three percent (53%) of voters oppose the health care reform plan proposed by the president and congressional Democrats.
Just 20% now say health care reform is the most important of the four budget priorities Obama laid out early in his presidency. Nearly twice as many (37%) say deficit reduction is the number one priority.
Fifty-one percent (51%) of voters worry that the government will try to do too much to fix the country’s economic problems, while 36% fear it won’t do enough. Seventy-six percent (76%) of Americans say it is at least somewhat likely that a large amount of money in the stimulus plan will be wasted due to inadequate government oversight.
More Americans are waking up...but are we too late?
