Healthcare's failure...A partisan story: 

Bottom Line: How do you feel about the GOP's failure to advance healthcare reform in the Senate? The odds are your political preferences color the outcome. Despite 80% of Americans citing healthcare reform as the issue they wanted most addressed in January, and 77% as recently as three weeks ago, the failed efforts by the Senate Republicans are being met with a partisan response. Reuters/Ipsos surveyed our feelings regarding the failed healthcare effort. They found the following: 

  • 67% of Republicans feel badly about the Senate's failure last week
  • 75% of Democrats are glad they failed

In terms of who's being blamed by those who're unhappy with the outcome: 

  • 20% Senate Republicans
  • 13% President Trump
  • 11% Senator McCain 

(several other people/factors in single digits)

So where do we want to go from here? Turns out the average American is frustrated with the healthcare debate...these are the new top three issues the average American would like to have addressed: 

  1. Tax Reform
  2. Foreign Policy matters
  3. Infrastructure

Healthcare has dropped to 4th. That's probably a temporary emotional reaction to the drama in D.C. that will change as soon as the next time a person has to deal with the healthcare cost realities but it does demonstrate how the Senate Republican's failure has led to a lack of trust in the competence of them to improve healthcare in this country. And that has been earned...
