New Survey Shows Overwhelming Support Among Latinos for Health Care Reform That Includes Public Option
Date:11/30/2009

This is particularly impressive, given that in April 2009 a similar Latino Decisions poll found that only 6% of the Latino electorate had identified health care as the most important issue.

"Lawmakers will once again tackle health care reform when they return to Was
