Kaiser Health Tracking Poll — April 2011

As Congress and the president debate different approaches to reducing the deficit, the April Kaiser Health Tracking Poll indicates that initial public reaction is fairly evenly split when a premium support/voucher program like the one in House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan’s “Path to Prosperity” proposal is described, but seniors prefer to keep the current Medicare system by a 2‐to‐1 margin. Meanwhile, public opinion on the health reform law remains remarkably steady.

The April poll is the latest in a series designed and analyzed by the Foundation’s public opinion research team.
