A summary of Kaiser's September health care tracking poll:

Six weeks from the contentious midterm elections, confusion over the new health law has risen to its highest point since April, with 53 percent of Americans saying they are confused about health reform, up 8 percentage points from August.  Misperceptions about the law also persist: for example, three in ten seniors believe the law will permit government panels to make decisions about end-of-life care for Medicare recipients (often referred to as "death panels").
