Brad O'Leary: New Poll: Health Care Issues Loom Large for 2010 Elections
Date:9/22/2009

rs to deny payments for certain procedures that it deems unnecessary or futile, does not appear to sit well with crucial 2010 midterm voters.

Fifty-nine percent of voters in close 2010 Senate races oppose the creation of such an agency, while only 31 percent would support it. Sixty percent of voters in close 2010 House races oppose the idea, and just 29 percent support it.

Voters also oppose new taxes on employer-provided health care benefits. A whopping 77 percent of voters in 2010 Senate races oppose this tax, as do 80 percent of voters in 2010 House races.

Also tremendously unpopular is the notion of raising taxes to pay for a new government health insurance program to cover the roughly 26 million Americans who can afford to purchase health insurance (but choose not to purchase it for whatever reason) and the estimated 12 million illegal immigrants residing in the U.S. Seventy-seven percent of midterm Senate election voters oppose new taxes for such a program, and 76 percent of midterm House election voters are in opposition as well.

By now you're probably wondering if there are any ideas in the current health care debate that a majority of 2010 voters support. There are, but they are proposals that, unfortunately, the president and the Democratic leadership in Congress are loathe to promote.

An astounding 80 percent of voters in competitive 2010 Senate elections want Congress to pass tort reform and lower the cost of medical malpractice insurance. Seventy-eight percent of voters in competitive House races also want tort reform.

Also popular with 2010 voters is lifting current regulatory barriers and allowing people to purchase health insurance from providers located outside their home states. Eighty-two percent of voters in competitive Senate races support such a reform, as do 84 percent of voters in competitive House races.

Midterm elections are typically losers for the party occupying the White Hou
