Poll: Majority of Voters Want Medicare Funding Left Untouched

October 31, 2011

As the Super Committee works away at a plan to cut over $1 trillion from the federal budget, a new poll shows that 83 percent of voters oppose cuts to Medicare and higher beneficiary copayments. The survey also found that about 70 percent of voters think that the government should do more to cut waste, fraud and abuse in Medicare and Medicaid spending.

The poll of 1,000 voters was commissioned by Fight Fraud First, a coalition made up of groups including AARP that is urging the Super Committee to root out waste and fraud in Medicare and Medicaid before cutting funding for the programs or increasing copayments. It was conducted by Fabrizio, Ward & Associates and Greenburg Quinlan Rosner Research.
