Should Free Market Preside Over Health Care?

When it comes to health care reform, voters continue to think an overall reduction in costs is more important than guaranteeing that everyone has insurance -- but they would prefer that the government keep their hands off and leave it up to some healthy competition to solve the problem.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 59% of U.S. Likely Voters say that reducing costs is the more important health care reform, while 35% say that making sure that everyone has health insurance is more important. Five percent (5%) are undecided.  (To see survey question wording, click here.)
