Shared Responsibility Most Favorable

According to a study published in Health Affairs, 48% of US residents in 2008 claimed they would support an individual mandate which would require all residents to have health insurance.

Notably, this number increases to 59% if included as part of a “shared responsibility” plan that includes requirements from insurers, employers, and the government, as well.

The study found that “shared responsibility” plans are more favorable than individual mandates across all sociodemographic and partisan groups.
