Opposition to Single-Payer System Grows

leave a comment »

On Monday, 8/10/09, Rasmussen reported that 57% of Americans oppose the single-payer health care system being proposed by Obama, while only 32% are in favor of such a system.  Further 52% believe this will result in a lower quality of care, while only 13% believe quality of care would improve.

Why do our politicians continue working towards forcing this bill through the legislative process?  Why are Democrats and major media outlets portraying open civilian protest against this bill as being contrived and “fake”?  It is clear that the more people have time to read the bill (available in HTML and PDF download, with summaries of key issues), the more opposition grows.  There is little doubt that it is for this reason alone that attempts were made to pass the current bill in only 2-3 weeks’ time.  As more citizens begin to learn the truth about what is in this bill, one can only hope that opposition continues to strengthen in volume and intensity.

While our politicians don’t have time to read the bill, we obviously do … and we should.
