The Mercury News

With less than two months until open enrollment begins for health care coverage under Obamacare, half of Californians say they are paying more for health care coverage this year than last, and half also say that their coverage is difficult to afford, a new Field Poll released Monday found.

Californians also appear to like the government health programs already in place: 79 percent — including 84 percent of Democrats and 73 percent of Republicans — say Medicare is a success in meeting its goals.
