HEALTH CARE IN THE ELECTION.

Despite its prominence as an issue in the 2000 presidential election, health care ranked behind other issues of concern to American voters. A post-election poll conducted by the Health Insurance Association of America showed that voters were more concerned about Social Security, education, abortion, taxes, and the economy than they were about health care. When health care was examined as an issue, Al Gore's HMO reform and prescription drug plans were perceived more positively by American voters than the plans of George W. Bush. The Health Insurance Association of America is a 300-member trade association that represents the private health care system.
