New Research Suggests Most Are Willing to Make Tradeoffs and Would Embrace Comprehensive Health Care Reform

Most would pay more for a system that works better. As participants began to understand all the ways in which they pay for health care (taxes, wages, insurance premiums, etc.) they grew concerned over a system that they viewed as simultaneously cost intensive and largely flawed, and expressed greater openness to paying more for a system that works.

Participants shift opinion of "freeloaders" and become more supportive of health care benefits for all residents after learning more about the circumstances of the uninsured. Another contentious issue where perceptions shifted over the course of discussion regarded whether a public health care system would cover "freeloaders," including people who do not work and illegal immigrants. However, once participants learned that most uninsured people are actually working or are members of families with workers, they began to reconsider their assumptions about the uninsured and trended toward support of all state residents (citizens or not) being covered. In addition, all dialogue groups included a percentage of uninsured that was proportional to the percentage in the population, so participants developed a better understanding of the realities being faced by the uninsured. Researchers also found that once participants learned that costs for covering the uninsured are already largely passed on to the public, they were more likely to see the practical and economic rationale for extending coverage to all Americans.
