Public Ready for Changes to Health-Care System But Unclear About Necessary Trade-Offs, Citizen Forums Suggest
Date:6/22/2009

ly an issue Americans desperately want to address, Public Thinking about Coping with the Cost of Health Care finds that more work is required to move the national dialogue forward: people need a clear set of policy choices, with inherent costs and trade-offs spelled out, and the opportunity to deliberate about those options.

Public Thinking about Coping with the Cost of Health Care and more information is available at kettering.org.

The organizations involved in this study are nonprofit and nonpartisan:

  • Public Agenda (www.publicagenda.org) is a nonpartisan and nonprofit organization dedicated to help American leaders better understand the public's point of view and to help citizens know more about critical policy issues so they can make thoughtful, informed decisions.
  • National Issues Forums Institute (www.nifi.org) is chartered for the purpose of promoting National Issues Forums (NIF). NIF is a network of civic, educational, and other organizations, whose common interest is to promote public deliberation.
  • Kettering Foundation (www.kettering.org) is a research organization, focused on what it takes to make democracy work as it should.
