72% of Americans want a government run health insurance program.

Now here’s what I’m talking about.  Check out the numbers from this latest poll by the NY Times and CBS:

But the Times/CBS poll found 85 percent of respondents wanted major healthcare reforms and most would be willing to pay higher taxes to ensure everyone had health insurance. An estimated 46 million Americans currently have no coverage.

Seventy-two percent of those questioned said they backed a government-administered insurance plan similar to Medicare for those under 65 that would compete for customers with the private sector. Twenty percent said they were opposed.

    Im not sure why anyone would want a govt run program. I trust that corporations will take care of us and look out for the weakest in our society. After all there number on priority is the welfare of each and every one of us. They would never let things like more money in their pockets get in the way of helping people.
