A USA Today/Gallup poll release after the election of Republican Scott Brown in Massachusetts shows that a majority of Americans believes Congress should start over on health care reform and abandon the current House and Senate bills.
(Public sentiment has finally caught up with what I've been saying for the past year–the status quo is better than the Democrats' Taxachusetts-based reform.)
The poll shows 55 percent of Americans favoring a redo and 39 percent favoring a go-ahead on current legislation. Those favoring the start-over are largely Republicans and Independents, as two-thirds of Democrats are fine with the current reform measures.
In addition, 46 percent said that other issues were more important than health care reform while 32 percent still consider it a priority.
