Health care reform has been at the forefront of American politics for more than a year, and it continues to be a controversial issue, influencing the 2010 mid-term elections.

There is a brand new AP poll, conducted by Stanford University with the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.
The conclusions: The new AP poll finds that Americans who think the law should have done more outnumber those who think the government should stay out of health care by 2-to-1.
“The poll found that about four in 10 adults think the new law did not go far enough to change the health care system, regardless of whether they support the law, oppose it or remain neutral. On the other side, about one in five say they oppose the law because they think the federal government should not be involved in health care at all.”
Hmmmm… 4 in 10 think the law did not go far enough and only 1 in 5 think the government should not be involved in health car eat all. Imagine that. Don’t have to imagine it, it’s a Fact.
“Republicans “are going to have to contend with the 75 percent who want substantial changes in the system,”…”
That ‘substantial changes in the system’ include Single Payer, Universal Health Care. Cover everyone. That is what the majority of the citizens of the United States really want. The truth is starting to come out.
So in other words the Republicans are pretty much using the correct numbers, but have them backwards. Switch the ‘For’ and ‘Against’ on this issue around and you have what the people really want. They do this kind of switching for the confusion factor. Propaganda 101.
When the Republicans say they are using the “right” numbers, they are correct, as they are using numbers from the “Right”.
However they are not presenting the numbers correctly, as they are spinning the real facts to make you think the opposite of what is really the case.
This Health Care ‘debate’ is just another example of their spinning.
Republicans do not care about people, they only care about money and how to get yours. Remember that when you vote.

Of course it didn’t go far enough, it didn’t fix anything! Typical government making a bill and passing a law that most didn’t read and also put in more terrible earmarks. It ends up costing us hundred of billions of dollars and fixes nothing.
We can’t get a flood policy and diversion passed in Devils Lake and Fargo without years and years of studies and tests but we can pass a health care bill in just weeks, go figure!
Typical government policies which is why we need a change in Washington. The old blood is bad blood as the ones who wrecked the system can not be trusted to fix the system. I don’t care which political party they are. Most of them are all crooks as why would you spend millions of dollars to get elected to a hundred thousand dollar job? Also they all come out millionaires and with full retirement at their current salaries after just one term. Wouldn’t you like a job like that and also one that you can vote yourself a raise?

That AP Poll does not mean much here. You talk to people on the street and around twon, all over, they are not happy with this obama care nonsense. Mr Pomeroy supported it after we told him my large majority we did not want it. He elected to vote with Pelosi who is so far out of touch she has not seen the ball since the kickoff. VOTE BERG for ND.

You mean a real unbiased poll, unlike the conservative polls we are all used to?
Don’t be too shock come November
