Voters Still Want Feds Out of Health Care

Reducing costs remains voters' top health care priority, and they continue to believe that keeping government out of the health care market is the best way to achieve that goal.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 59% of Likely U.S. Voters consider reducing the cost of health care more important than making sure everyone has health insurance which is the goal of Obamacare. Thirty-seven percent (37%) think universal health insurance is more important. That's in line with surveys on this question since March of last year, but  cost has been voters’ number one concern in surveys since the current health care debate began several years ago.
