>Health Care Poll

>In this morning’s New York Times are the results of a CBS/NYT poll about Health Care.

Would you favor or oppose the government’s offering everyone a government administered health insurance plan like Medicare that would compete with private health insurance plans?

Favor – 72%, Oppose – 20%.

I favor. Health care is a right not a privilege.

Would you be willing or not willing to pay higher taxes so that all Americans have health insurance that they can’t lose no matter what?

Willing – 57%, Not willing – 37%.

I am willing to help those less fortunate than I by paying a bit more in taxes.

Which is a more serious problem right now: keeping health care costs down or providing health insurance for Americans who do not have any?

Keeping costs down – 26%, Providing for uninsured – 65%.
Among Republicans: Keeping costs down 52%, Providing for uninsured – 44%.
Among Democrats: Keeping costs down 15%, Providing for uninsured – 78%.

I believe providing for the uninsured is more serious. It looks like Republicans are more concerned with keeping a buck or two in their pocket than in helping those less fortunate. Predictable. Shameful.
