Enough with the talk about Medicare for All, tell us how our health care costs are going to come down.
That’s the message from nearly half of voters in a new Morning Consult poll. The poll, conducted September 13-15 among 533 voters who watched the most recent Democratic presidential debate, found that 47% want to hear more about health care plans might change their deductibles and co-pays or their prescription drug costs. A similar share of potential Democratic primary voters wanted to hear more about their pocketbook issues rather than broad policy debates.
Only 14% of voters want to hear more about potential tax increases, and only 7% of them want more debate about national health expenditures broadly.
