Majority of Americans choose to keep their doctors over private insurance.

SUNNYVALE, Calif. – Oct. 15, 2019 — By an overwhelming 22 point margin, 51 percent of Americans said they prefer to keep their doctor compared to just 29 percent who would keep their insurance company.

This follows on the heels of a September EUHC4CA/Google Surveys poll showing 53 percent of Americans supporting a Single Payer, Medicare for All system even if it meant increasing taxes and eliminating private insurance for everyone.

“This is the last piece of the puzzle. Senators Sanders and Warren are right: Americans don’t want insurance companies. And they don’t care about taxes. They want healthcare, and they want it now,” said Dale Fountain, Chairperson/CEO of Enact Universal Healthcare for California.

“Americans are going bankrupt as they’re ground in the gears of medical greed and corruption. Of course they hate insurance companies. Do our elected officials really want to wait to see their constituents have nothing left to lose? That’s how revolutions start,” said Vice Chairperson Michael Saucedo.

Enact Universal Healthcare for California is the largest Single Payer organization in California and arguably the USA with over 122,000 supporters in California alone. Join EUHC4CA’s page on Facebook for the latest news and research.

EUHC4CA/Google Surveys Single Payer Poll Results

Majority of Americans Support Raising Taxes And Eliminating Private Health Insurers for Single Payer / “Medicare-for-All”

In a Sept. 2019 EUHC4CA/Google Surveys poll, 53% of Americans favored dumping private health insurers and moving the entire country to Single Payer.

SUNNYVALE, Calif. – Oct. 7, 2019 — A majority of Americans put private health insurance companies on notice when they said they would be fine with transitioning everyone in the USA to a federal health insurance plan as long as they could keep their doctors and coverage, even if it meant increased taxes and eliminating private health insurers.

“We asked the question honestly and threw in the worst phrases possible. It turns out that Americans are intelligent and compassionate people,” said Dale Fountain, Chairperson/CEO of Enact Universal Healthcare for California. “Americans want a Single Payer / Medicare for All health system, and they’re perfectly fine with mandating it for everyone. Lawmakers, take heed, or lose your jobs to people who will.”

In February, EUHC4CA ran a similar poll also showing a majority of Americans backing Single Payer.

“The people of this great country aren’t merely asking, they are DEMANDING that our country’s leaders protect the health and safety of its citizens, especially of our more vulnerable members – our children, our disabled, our elderly – from the predatory practices of the health insurance and pharma industries,” said Vice Chairperson Michael Saucedo.

67% of Californians oppose the ACA individual mandate

SUNNYVALE, Calif.Mar. 7, 2019 — According to a new poll from Enact Universal Healthcare for California and Google Surveys, Californians widely rejected Governor Gavin Newsom’s proposed reinstatement of the ACA’s individual mandate penalties — 67% opposed vs 14% in support.

“Californians don’t want to pour salt on an open wound. Health insurance premiums and deductibles are becoming more unaffordable each year, and that is no one’s fault but the Legislature’s continued inaction,” said Dale Fountain, Chairperson/CEO of Enact Universal Healthcare for California.

“We need to stop punishing the poor with half-baked schemes that only serve to prop up greedy private health insurance corporations. This is a severely regressive measure that does nothing to address affordability. It is no wonder that Californians want it thrown out,” said Vice Chairperson Michael Saucedo.

Previous polls showed 61% of Californians supported tax increases for Single Payer, and 51% of Californians support eliminating private insurance altogether.

Enact Universal Healthcare for California is the largest single payer organization in California with over 117,000 supporters within the state.
