Though the ruinous consequences of high health care costs don’t follow party lines, Republicans tend to believe they’re getting more for their money than Democrats and independents do, according to the results of a new nationwide survey released today by San Diego’s West Health. The nonpartisan and nonprofit organization created by philanthropists Gary and Mary West worked with market research firm Gallup to poll 3,537 randomly-selected Americans across all 50 states and the District of Columbia, asking questions designed to gauge the impacts of and attitudes surrounding health costs.
