New poll reveals strong support for a public option plan and prescription drug affordability board

VOTERS SUPPORT HEALTH CARE REFORMS AND TAX SAVINGS FOR WORKING FAMILIES

A recent poll conducted by Strategies 360 for the State Innovation Exchange (SiX) shows that voters strongly support progressive solutions to make health care more affordable and put more money in the pockets of working people.

Health Care

The skyrocketing cost of health care and prescription drugs remains a top issue for Colorado residents. The findings highlight that progressive policy solutions like limiting hospital profit margins, increasing competition in the health care market, and capping prescription drug costs would make a real difference for Colorado families.

Economic Issues

Voters continue to support measures that expand tax savings for low- and middle-income families. There is robust support for the state to expand the Earned Income Tax Credit and Child Tax Credit, which would provide desperately needed economic relief for families making less than $75,000 per year.
