A new poll conducted for Protect Our Care, a pro-Affordable Care Act grassroots group, found 54 percent of voters have an unfavorable opinion of the House health care bill and lays out what changes they think the Senate should make.

Particularly unpopular: the bill's treatment of pre-existing conditions and its provision allowing older people to be charged higher premiums related to younger people than under current law.

Other highlights of the poll, which was taken before the Congressional Budget Office released its report on the bill on Wednesday:

  • 40 percent have a favorable opinion of the bill.
  • 80 percent say the provision allowing older people to pay higher premiums raises big concerns.
  • 78 percent say the provision allowing people with pre-existing conditions to pay higher premiums raises big concerns.
  • 62 percent say they want the Senate to work on a bill that keeps what works under the ACA and fixes what doesn't.
  • 79 percent think changes to the health care system should be bipartisan.

Many politicians and public health officials sounded a similar lockdown refrain in the spring: let’s do this right so we only have to do it once.

Reality check: While some countries have thus far managed to keep cases under control after opening up, dozens of countries that had initially turned a corner are now seeing a worrying rebound. They have to decide if and how to return to lockdown — and whether their populations will stand for it.
