A new study just released by Medicalcareplans.com is now showing that a surprising number of Republicans support left-wing causes like Universal Health Care.
According to the study, 25 percent of Republicans claim to want a single healthcare plan run by the government.
In addition 1/3 of young Republicans also claim to support a government run healthcare system.
Unsurprisingly Americans were also divided by party over how they would like their healthcare delivered:
In spite of this a small minority are still interested in scrapping medicaid and medicare al together
As Medicareplans.com reports:
Despite the imperfections of current government-run healthcare programs, removing the government entirely from providing healthcare coverage to Americans does not have much widespread support. Only 8% of all survey respondents think healthcare coverage should only be provided by privately-run companies.
Twelve percent of Republicans support abolishing all government-run programs, compared to only 4% of Democrats.
When asked why they think Medicare and Medicaid should be abolished, the reasons most cited by Republicans are that private companies are more efficient (53%); they deliver better care (50%); people abuse public programs (43%), and public-run programs lead to socialism (40%).
