What Are Americans’ Health Care Priorities?

Kaiser Family Foundation: “This month’s Kaiser Health Tracking Poll finds that the affordability of prescription drugs continues to be at the top of the public’s priority list for the President and Congress, with ‘making sure that high-cost drugs are affordable to those who need them’ and ‘government action to lower prescription drug prices’ picked as top priorities by majorities across political parties. Issues specific to the ACA, such as repealing provisions of the law or repealing the law entirely, fall much lower on the list. For example, while the public generally opposes the Cadillac tax, a provision of the health care law that has received a lot of attention recently, relatively few (30 percent) say it should be a top priority.”
