The debate over health reform is heating up, and now it’s more important than ever to understand the broad common ground that exists among business, labor, government leaders, and as we learned yesterday, Republican and Democrat voters.
At an America¹s Agenda event yesterday, two leading pollsters and political strategists from the political right and left - Bill McInturff of Public Opinion Strategies and Celinda Lake of Lake Research Partners -- released a new voter survey looking at how voters see key health reform policies.
Their findings show that both Republican and Democratic voters agree on some specific, common sense reforms like -- putting more emphasis on prevention in our health care system, physician-managed personal medical teams, eliminating co-pays and perhaps most importantly, the need to move forward with health reform policies that improve quality and control costs for all Americans.
The question, now, is whether members of Congress will build a successful strategy to enact a health reform plan around elements for which McInturff and Lake found such broad and bipartisan voter consensus.
