Nearly half of the people on Medicare have an unfavorable impression of a new law adding a prescription drug benefit to the program, according to a new study.[@@]
The same study found that 26% of those surveyed viewed the new law favorably, while 25% said they did not know enough about it to offer an opinion.
However, the survey, by the Kaiser Family Foundation and the Harvard School of Public Health, found that 66% think lawmakers should fix the new law rather than scrap it and start anew. Only 1 in 10 favored outright repeal of the law, while 13% favored leaving it as is.
