READ TO ALL: Now I have a few questions about the health care law that Congress passed in 2010…   ASK ALL CC1. Under this law, employers who provide health insurance are required to cover prenatal testing for pregnant women. Some oppose the mandate because prenatal testing may encourage more abortions. Do you think employers who provide health insurance should or should NOT be required to cover prenatal testing for their employees? Feb 23-26 2012 60 30 10

Should be required Should not be required Don’t know/Refused (VOL.)

ASK ALL CC2. The health reform law also requires employers providing health insurance for their workers to cover other medical services, such as birth control, free of cost. Some members of Congress have proposed legislation that would allow employers to deny coverage for any medical service that violates the employer’s moral convictions or religious beliefs. What about you…do you support OR oppose this legislation? Feb 23-26 2012 40 44 16

Support Oppose Don’t know/Refused (VOL.)

ASK ALL CC3. As you may know, President Obama recently announced a new policy on health insurance and birth control. Under the rule, if a religiously-based institution, such as a Catholic hospital or university, objects to providing coverage for its workers for birth control, its insurance company must pay for the coverage instead. What about you…do you support OR oppose this requirement? Feb 23-26 2012 49 40 12

ASK ALL CC4. As you may know, last year the House of Representatives voted to eliminate federal funding for Planned Parenthood, which provides a variety of health care services to women such as birth control and breast cancer screening. Some Planned Parenthood clinics perform abortions, though not using federal funds. Do you think Congress should cut off funding for Planned Parenthood, or not? Feb 23-26 2012 24 69 8

Should cut funding Should not cut funding Don’t know/Refused (VOL.)

READ TO ALL: On another subject… ASK ALL CC5. Looking back, do you think the federal government should have provided financial help to U.S. automakers who were in financial trouble, or should these companies have been allowed to succeed or fail on their own? Feb 23-26 2012 36 55 9 May 20-24 20101 33 61 6

Government should have helped Government should not have helped Don’t know/Refused (VOL.)

ASK ALL CC6. If you knew that a candidate for U.S. Congress in your district had supported the auto bailout, would that make you more likely or less likely to vote for them, or would it not make much difference either way?
