Health Care Reform Update

November 11, 1993

POLL -- Eighty-four percent of Americans believe the current health care system needs fundamental change or complete rebuilding, shows a new Louis Harris and Associates poll released yesterday.

But aside from that consensus, there is much division about exactly what should be done. The poll shows:

* Thirty-two percent support President Clinton's proposal to require employers to buy health insurance for employees and to offer government subsidies for low-income persons and small business.

* Thirty-two percent liked an alternative that would give federal aid to help low-to-moderate income persons buy private insurance.

* Twenty-eight percent strongly support a Canadian-style government health plan financed by taxes.
