What does health care “reform” mean? More spending, deficits, and taxes! At least, that’s what a growing majority of the American people believes.
This uncertainty about health care reform is based at least in part on the plan’s cost and who will pay. Just over half of Americans (54 percent) think it is unlikely major health care reforms can be passed without increasing the federal deficit and a slightly higher number (60 percent) think it is implausible to do so without raising taxes.
In fact, majorities of Democrats (52 percent), Republicans (69 percent) and independents (61 percent) doubt the reforms can happen without tax increases.
Supporters of health care freedom need to keep emphasizing this theme. There ain’t no such thing as a free lunch, especially if Uncle Sam is able to take over the aspects of medical care currently outside of his control.
