Nationally, support for the health care reform plan proposed by President Obama and congressional Democrats has fallen to a new low. Just 42% favor the plan while 53% are opposed. Other data shows that 51% fear the federal government more than private insurance companies. Forty-one percent (41%) fear the insurance companies more. Overall, 32% favor a single-payer health care system for the U.S. while 57% are opposed.
Sixty-six percent (66%) oppose Mexican trucks on U.S. highways while just 19% favor lifting that ban. Most oppose Canada’s request to lift the Buy American provision for projects funded by the stimulus package.
