Public moving towards governmment funded healthcare

Christian Science Monitor - Americans aren't enthralled with "Obamacare" and they definitely don't like the Republican plans offered in Congress, so what does the public want the government to do about health care?

A new poll suggests the country may be shifting toward the political left on the issue, with 62 percent saying it's the federal government's responsibility to make sure that all Americans have health care coverage, while 37 percent say it is not.

The survey findings from the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research indicate a change in public attitudes over the past few months, as concerns mounted about GOP legislation estimated to leave tens of millions without coverage.

With these blatantly exploitative health care proposals, the Republicans are clearly exposing themselves to the nation as the money-grubbing swine that they are.

This increasing interest of the people in single payer might lead the people to investigate other elements of socialist thinking that could ultimately result in the richly deserved demise of the Republican Party.

Unfortunately the Democrats do not seem to be very good at exposing the money grubbing swine, they just seem to want th\eir cut. And with neither party telling the truth, the Democrats seem more likely to disappear with their inconsistent message.
