Poll: insurers first in blame game

Americans blame health insurance companies more than pharmas for problems with the US healthcare system—but not by much.

An August Harris Interactive poll of 2,498 US adults found that 90% of respondents blame insurers for the state of American healthcare, with 60% saying insurers deserve a “great deal of blame.” But pharmas were right behind them in the blame game, with 84% of respondents saying the drug industry is to blame—53% assigning it a great deal. Next up: Republicans in Congress (74%); business (72%); hospitals (70%); Democrats in Congress (69%); former President George W. Bush (66%); and doctors (61%).
