Field Poll: Majority of Californians back federal health care law
Sacramento Bee

A majority of Californians say they support the new federal health care law but view it as just the first step toward fixing the country’s much-criticized health care system, according to a Field Poll released today.

These sentiments run counter to those expressed nationally. Other recent polls have found a lukewarm, if not hostile, reception to the $940 billion legislation aimed at widening access to health care for the country’s millions of uninsured.
