If only 43% in Minnesota , a liberal state, supports this, then a national poll would show it with even less support. Stop trying to push this!!!!

"Independents fall in between, with 38 percent expressing support." Only 38%? I know why. Do you trust the GOVERNMENT to run 17% of the economy. Who will pay for it? I know -- the productive, working middle class (you and me) paying for it.

of course this is the number. You could put those numbers to those who are liberals, conservatives and independents on any poll out there and that is what you would get. What a waste of a story and money.

anyone support government run healthcare when they can not keep our bridges up and borders secure. Seems like a no-brainer to me.

I can't imagine anyone who would not support reforming health care. What I do not support is Government Run Health Care. There is much about our current system that needs reforming, but handing every aspect over to the government is a huge mistake.

because it doesn't have a strong public option. I don't want to send our tax money to insurance companies to increase their profits. I want a medicare-like system for the people who are unable to buy or cannot afford insurance. I have a good work-related policy myself, but I'm a Vietnam vet who was without insurance for times for myself and my family between jobs and while attending school.

Without cost controls, I don't like the proposals either, but if we continue down the same road, we can look forward to the highest priced health care in the world and the worst health. We cannot sustain 10-15% increases in cost every year.
