Poll: Congress Should Start Over with Health Care Reform Legislation

Online publication The Hill  reported this week that a new Zogby International-University of Texas Health Science Center poll found that more than half of the respondents wanted lawmakers to start from scratch on health care reform legislation. More than 2,500 people were surveyed from January 29 to February 1, 2010, with 57 percent saying Congress should start over. Read the story here.

A recent NCMS survey of members found most physicians favor health care reform, but they do not support legislation that is currently being considered in the U.S. House and Senate.  The NCMS is committed to its long-standing position that changes are needed in health care delivery.

Resources on health care reform can be found at https://www.compassionatecarenc.org/healthreform, including the NCMS’ Guiding Principles for Health System Reform.  Physicians are urged to stay engaged on the reform issue and to stay in contact with their Representatives and Senators, urging them to adopt reform measures supported by the NCMS (see “Health Care Reform: Looking for Direction,” Bulletin, February 5, 2010.)
