Survey: Wrong health care priorities by Obama

Further proof that Barack Obama just doesn't get it when it comes to health care reform.

A new survey shows open markets and tort reform -- neither included in Obamacare -- should be the top priority of lawmakers.

From Argyle Executive Forum:
Survey results by Argyle Executive Forum in response to President Obama's Healthcare Summit reveal business leaders feel open markets and tort reform should be the top priority of law makers.

Argyle Executive Forum conducted the survey electronically today and received more than 900 responses from members of its senior corporate leadership community.

The precise wording of the survey question was:

"Which of these issues do you feel should be the top priority of law makers as they relate to the future of the U.S. health care system?"

The choices and associated percentages of the results are listed below
• Open markets & increased competition across state lines – 22.6%
• Tort reform – 21.9%
• Universal healthcare - Government option – 18%
• Cost containment - fraud elimination – 16%
• Coverage for preexisting conditions – 6%
• Prevention programs – 4%
• Plan portability – 1%
• Other – 10%
