Health care, social security and energy: Americans are worried
The availability and affordability of health care tops the list of issues about which Americans are concerned, with nearly seven out of 10 people citing it as a substantial source of worry, according to an article published in the journal Editor & Publisher today. (See last week's post about how you can voice your health care concerns to the government.) The next most worrisome issue is social security, followed closely by the availability and affordability of energy.
Results are based on a gallup poll of 1,000 adults conducted several weeks ago over the telephone, according to the article.
