IWF in the News: Women Aren't Liking The Sexiest President That Ever Was or Will Be's Health Care Plan
The Independent Women's Forum has conducted a poll of 800 women with a margin of error of ± 3.5%.
The results are not good for the Democrats.
You can read the summary here (PDF).
Basically, women really don't like the public option and they really think all of this should wait anyway.
- Fifty-one percent of women are unsatisfied and 42% are satisfied with what they have read, seen, or heard about the proposals or legislation to change the way healthcare is covered and delivered here in the United States.
- Fifty-four percent would not personally trade in their coverage for a public plan; 38% would.
- Fifty-six percent disagree and 36% agree that "women like me would be best served by a government?run healthcare plan."
- Fifty-seven percent disagree and 34% agree that "a federally?run healthcare program is what is best formy family and me."
- Seventy-five percent want few to no changes to their own healthcare (40% ?? be modified, but mostly left as is; 35% ?? be left as?is) while 19% want it to undergo dramatic overhaul. For healthcare generally in the United States, a plurality of women (48%) wants slight modifications, 11% hope it is left unchanged, and 35% wish for dramatic changes.
The women in the Senate might want to think twice before supporting this nonsense.
