Citizens on Government Health Care Say 'No More'

Zogby/O'Leary poll shows government health care recipients believe expansion will do harm

(Vocus) September 17, 2009 -- Citizens who know government-run health care the best - the recipients of Medicare, Medicaid, TRICARE and other programs - say they oppose Washington's proposed expansion and think it will do more harm than good.

That comes from the newest Zogby International/O'Leary Report poll of 4,426 likely voters Sept. 4-8.

A subset of 842 voters found to be receiving government health care from a number of programs were asked a series of questions about the proposals offered by Washington.

According to the poll, a majority of American voters who currently are covered by a government health insurance program oppose more government intrusion into the health-care industry.

O'Leary, besides authoring the report bearing his name, also has written ''Shut Up America: The End of Free Speech.''

The first poll question was: "Would you support or oppose having a government health insurance plan compete with private health insurance plans?"

More than 50 percent said they opposed a government-run option, about 41 percent said they support it and the rest were uncertain.

"Who better to ask about government-run health care than those who currently rely on the government for their health care?" asked Brad O'Leary, publisher of ''The O'Leary Report.''
