WOMEN AND THE HIGH COST OF HEALTH CARE REFORM
- 55% of women think that the CBO projection of $829 billion is an underestimation of how much will ultimately be spent on healthcare reform.
- 46% of women believe it is impossible to spend $829 billion and save the deficit $81 billion.
- A plurality of women said that $829 billion is too much to spend if spending on Medicare is cut by $500 billion.
