The latest poll from Rasmussen suggests American voters would rather Congress and the President take no action whatsoever in reforming the nation's health care system than passing the proposals currently under consideration:

Middle-income voters are more likely than others to say that passing no legislation is the better option.

One reason for this is that most Americans now believe they will be worse off if reform passes. Fifty-four percent (54%) hold that view while just 25% believe they would be better off.

Senior citizens are more pessimistic than younger voters. Just 16% of seniors think they’ll be better off if the legislation passes while 59% have the opposite view.
