Rising Health Care Costs Top Public Concern


Interesting tidbit at the bottom of this Wall Street Journal story about GOP efforts to portray themselves as interested in health care reform:

Resurgent Republic, a Web site that provides polling-based strategy for
Republicans, noted that "there is a caveat" for the party's new,
aggressive strategy. "Concern about rising health-care costs outstrips
every other economic concern today," including job losses, it said in a
recent analysis.

That seems important, and a fact that would complicate Republican efforts to demagogue "rationing" health care.
