Poll finds Californians happier with their health care
San Francisco Chronicle

Nearly two years after the major elements of the federal health care law went into effect, California voters say they’re happier with the way the state is running its health care services, but the cost of coverage continues to be a problem, according to a Field Poll released Wednesday.

The poll, the ninth in an annual series of health-related surveys funded by the California Wellness Foundation, found 58 percent of voters said they were generally satisfied with the way the state’s health care system is functioning. Thirty-four percent of respondents described themselves as dissatisfied.
