73% of Blacks on LI Concerned About Quality of Healthcare

A new Siena Research Institute Poll shows a huge disparity in the views of Whites and Blacks on Long Island in regards to healthcare.
    • 73% of Blacks said they view the quality of care on Long Island as a problem, compared to 47% of Whites.
    • 45% of Blacks say the number of people without insurance is the single biggest problem that the health care system faces.
    • Only 20% of Whites agreed; instead, their biggest concern is the cost of health care, according to the poll.
    • Blacks are almost twice as likely as Whites - 79% compared to 41% - to support health care overhaul legislation that is based on proposals outlined by President Obama.
