Health care reform 'important' even to those who want new law repealed
Date:4/13/2010

INDIANAPOLIS Fifty-eight percent of Americans (96 percent of Republicans, 10 percent of Democrats and 54 percent of Independents) support repealing the health care reform legislation that was signed into law by President Barack Obama in March, according to a new national survey conducted April 6 - 10 by researchers from Indiana University's Center for Health Policy and Professionalism Research (CHPPR).

Americans 18 to 34 years of age were most supportive of repealing the legislation with more than 70 percent supporting its repeal.

"This is somewhat surprising given that some of the most vocal opposition to reform in the past came from older Americans while younger individuals seemed less opposed," said Aaron Carroll, M.D., director of CHPPR.

However, we find that 48 percent of Americans actually are supportive of Congress continuing to work on health care system reforms as opposed to focusing on any other topic," said Dr. Carroll. "In fact, 51 percent of those who supported repealing the legislation also were in favor of Congress continuing to work on health care system reforms."

When asked how imperative they thought it was for Congress to work on "establishment of a public option that would give individuals a choice between government-provided health insurance or private health insurance" in the upcoming legislative session, 67 percent of Americans rated this as important.

This finding is even more striking given the fact that 59 percent of all those in favor of repeal rated the public option as important. Moreover, so did 67 percent of all Republic
