The corrected release reads:
TD AMERITRADE SURVEY: AMERICANS WANT THE GOVERNMENT TO SPEND THEIR TAX DOLLARS ON AFFORDABLE HEALTH CARE AND JOB CREATION
Women more likely to support affordable health care, while men want job creationIf Americans could choose how the U.S. government spends their tax dollars, they’d designate affordable health care (38%) and job creation (36%) as top priorities, according to a new Tax Survey released by TD Ameritrade, Inc. (“TD Ameritrade”), a broker-dealer subsidiary of TD Ameritrade Holding Corporation (NYSE:AMTD). The survey also revealed that the desire for more affordable health care increases with age (35% of Gen Y; 38% of Gen X; 44% of Baby Boomers). “Over the last quarter, slow and steady job growth and improvements in the housing market have Americans feeling more optimistic that the economy is on the rebound +, but they also want the government to focus on the things that impact them most,” said Carrie Braxdale, managing director, investor services at TD Ameritrade. “And as more and more Baby Boomers enter retirement, quality and affordable health care will continue to be a growing concern among Americans.” Improving the quality of public education (28%) and improving the quality of health care (24%) were also top priorities, while protecting the environment (16%) and investment in U.S. defense (18%) were at the bottom of the list.
