Most Americans think that ‘Medicare for All’ will drive up income taxes, according to a survey from the Kaiser Family Foundation, ahead of the Democratic presidential debates next week.

While health care is a leading topic on the minds of Democrats and left-leaning independents before the debates kick off next Wednesday, 78% of U.S. citizens surveyed across party lines believe that a single payer system, known as Medicare for All, would drive taxes higher, according to the poll.
