Poll: GOP Plan for Vouchers Wrong Direction for Country

Burlington, VTDemocracy for America (DFA), released the  following statement after the Supreme Court upheld the Affordable Care Act as constitutional. 

“We are pleased that the individual mandate was ruled constitutional today by the Supreme Court,” said Jim Dean, Chair of Democracy for America.  “We believe that healthcare is a right and today that right is still available to all Americans.”

Dean continued, “Make no mistake that this will energize the Republican base and GOP candidates across the country will promote an alternative plan to the Affordable Care Act – vouchers. Fifty-seven percent of Americans agree – a GOP voucher plan is not the solution for our healthcare needs.   

Real reform – ensuring affordable healthcare for every American is the smartest investment we can make.  We’ll work with progressive candidates from across the country to ensure this investment continues.”



Democracy for America commissioned a poll late last week asking 900 registered voters from across the country their views on healthcare and the Republican voucher program.  The poll responses are listed below [the margin of error is +- 3.5%.]
