Americans Want To Keep Or Expand Health Care Reform; End Tax Cuts For The Rich

Posted by | November 23, 2010 11:03 | Filed under: Top Stories

A new McClatchy poll shows that Americans do not subscribe to the policies claimed by conservatives during the past election cycle.

A majority of Americans want the Congress to keep the new health care law or actually expand it, despite Republican claims that they have a mandate from the people to kill it, according to a new McClatchy-Marist poll.

The post-election survey showed that 51 percent of registered voters want to keep the law or change it to do more, while 44 percent want to change it to do less or repeal it altogether.

Just 16% want the health care law to stay as-is, but 35% want to expand it to do more. 33% favor repeal.

As Congress prepares to debate whether to extend the Bush-era tax cuts, the poll showed that 51 percent want to extend the tax cuts only for households making less than $250,000 a year, and 45 percent want to extend the tax cuts for all.
