Health care costs still a struggle, poll says
San Francisco Chronicle

Despite rising health care costs, the percentage of California voters who struggle to pay for health care hasn’t changed in five years, according to a Field Poll released Wednesday.

The survey of about 1,000 registered voters over 12 days in June and July found that 53 percent of respondents say it is hard to pay for health care, and 44 percent say it is not. A similar poll conducted five years ago found nearly identical results.
