Health Care: Cost is Job #1

Editor’s note: As the Congressional proposals and bills begin to see the light of day, cost control is emerging as job 1.

A recent poll on American health care reform found:

* 56% endorse the idea of enacting major health care changes this year

* 61% favor requiring employers to pay a fee if they do not provide health insurance to their employees

* 53% oppose taxing health care benefits above a certain level

* 52% choose controlling costs as more important; 42% cite expanding coverage
