Some left-leaning members of Congress have proposed legislation that would lead to the nationalization or complete government control of our health care system. However, an overwhelming majority of U.S. voters want control and decision-making to move in the opposite direction—away from government bureaucrats and toward states, small businesses, and families. Nine in 10 say that health care policy should empower people—not government bureaucrats or insurance companies—to make the best decisions for their families (94%). More than four in five Americans say health care plans should remove health care decision-making from Washington, D.C. bureaucrats and insurance company executives and give it to the states, small businesses, nonprofits, and families (84%). A similar proportion would support a plan that encourages health care innovations and options (96%) and allow more people access to personalized private coverage over government-run health programs like Medicaid (85%). Americans overwhelming agree, that our health care system should be the best in the world and offer more personal choice, more access to doctors, lower costs, higher-quality care, protections for people with pre-existing conditions, and open avenues for innovation (97%).
