Disability, Disease, and the Vote

Fibro Daily October 10, 2012

A poll of 1000 voters shows that 51% of them know someone who suffers from a disability, and many indicated that will affect how they vote. 41% of those voters said they would support a candidate who makes helping people with disabilities a national priority.

Health costs in the United States are astronomical on all levels: disability/chronic illness costs, emergency care, preventive care, pregnancy, and mental health issues all cost a fortune. Many Americans realize this, whether they are themselves in need of constant care or know someone who is. Medical costs have been a big part of the national debate, especially in the last few months with the Supreme Court upholding the Affordable Care Act

As the election draws near, it makes sense to pay attention to what the candidates say about their health policies. They have been involved in a major overhaul of the health industry.

Laszlo Strategies and the polling firm Greenberg Quinlan Rosner Research conducted the survey in early September.
