The Incidental Economist blog suggests that the problem is not health care reform, it’s simply the bad economy.
I just want to make it clear that I’m not suggesting that people’s concerns about paying for health care costs specifically aren’t valid. Nor am I suggesting that they can’t dislike the PPACA.
My issue is that some people reading polls seem to immediately take any change in opinion and immediately link it to the health care reform law, without asking if that is the reason for the change. That’s problematic, especially since there are many other reasons that confidence in the ability to pay for things may be decreasing.
