Three out of four people believe that raising taxes will not improve the NHS or social care.

According to recent polling by Ipsos Mori, three-quarters of Britons do not expect the increase in National Insurance to deliver the extra revenue needed to fund the NHS and improve social care.

People will have to pay an extra 1.25p in the pound starting in April to assist the health service recover from the epidemic and support social care, but the vast majority of those polled do not believe the tax increase would provide the required cash.

Seventy-six percent of respondents believe the NHS will require “even more financing,” while 74% believe social care will require additional funds.

There was also skepticism about the policy’s ability to improve things.

Only 37% believe the NHS would improve and more people will have access to social services.

Only 35% believe that staffing shortages in social care will be alleviated or that the quality of such services will increase.

Only a third (33 percent) believe the proposal will result in fewer NHS personnel shortages.

More over half of individuals (55%) believe the tax increase is unjust to the poor. Young people, according to 45%, are treated unfairly.

In their 2019 manifesto, the Conservatives committed not to raise National Insurance. On whether the government should have broken this promise, opinion is divided.

While 38% backed higher taxes to give more funding for the NHS and social care, 39% believed they were incorrect.

Older voters are far more inclined to support the initiative, with 53 percent of those aged 55 to 75 in favor, compared to only 31% of those aged 16 to 54.

Only 12% predict the Conservatives’ popularity to rise as a result of the program, while nearly six out of ten (58%) expect it to decrease.
