There’s nothing like the threat of losing a good thing to realize how good you had it after all. According the the latest Rasmussen poll, Americans’ perception of health care in the US as it now stands is improving.
Forty-nine percent (49%) of voters nationwide now rate the U.S. health care system as good or excellent. That marks a steady increase from 44% at the beginning of October, 35% in May and 29% a year-and-a-half ago.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just 27% now say the U.S. health care system is poor.
It is interesting to note that confidence in the system has improved as the debate over health care reform has moved to center stage. The latest polling shows that only 38% favor the health care legislation currently working its way through Congress.
Not that the democrats in congress give a hoot what the American people want.
