54 Percent of Americans Expect New Health Care Law Will Lead to Rationing

|

According to the latest national Reason-Rupe poll of 1200 adults, 54 percent of Americans believe it is likely that the new health care law passed by Congress in 2010 will lead to government rationing of health care services. Rationing meaning, some forms of medical care would no longer be covered because they are too costly, not essential, or have too little chance of success.

 

Expectations of the new health care law's impact may help explain favorability toward the law. For instance, among those who believe that government rationing of health care will likely result from the new law, 63 percent have an unfavorable view of the law in general. A majority among those who believe government rationing is unlikely favor the new law.
