Among just health industry leaders, 70 percent support a proposal requiring all parents to provide health insurance for their children. "For a great nation like ours to have still so many uninsured children is unacceptable. Americans and health leaders understand that it is time to cover all uninsured children," said McAndrews.

Other key findings of the survey of American consumers include:

  • Nearly half (49 percent) of Americans surveyed that there are some good things about the U.S. health care system, but major changes are needed. One-third (34 percent) of Americans believe there is so much wrong with the health system that it needs to be completely rebuilt.

  • Three-quarters (75 percent) of Americans said that all of the health reform proposals made during the campaign are still not sufficient to address the fundamental problems in the U.S. health care system.

  • When asked whether government would do a better or worse job than private insurance companies in managing and paying for health insurance coverage, 40 percent of those surveyed said the government would do a worse job while 59 percent said it would do the same or better.
