Poll: Americans Want Bipartisan HealthcareAugust 16, 2017 |
by ROBERT SHEEN
Now that the great Affordable Care Act (ACA) repeal and replace debate has seemingly ended in Congress, we’ve seen movement by members of Congress towards a bipartisan approach to healthcare reform, starting with discussions on how to improve the current law.
The new Kaiser Health Tracking Poll for August from the Kaiser Family Foundation shows that Americans are in lockstep with this bipartisan approach. A majority of the public (57%) want Republicans in Congress to work with Democrats to improve the ACA. Only 21% of Americans want to see Republican lawmakers continue to push for a GOP-only solution to repeal and replace the ACA.
