The GOP is campaigning to repeal Obama’s health care overhaul bill, calling it socialist and a job killer. To support this, they quote polls that show that Americans oppose the reform bill by numbers like 40% against to 30% in favor (with 30% neutral). So it sounds like Americans want the GOP to kill Obamacare. Right?
Wrong. The same poll that shows Americans against the bill also shows that by a huge two-to-one margin, Americans think the bill should have done more. So two-thirds of those people were against it because they wanted stronger health care reform, not less.
Other polls have shown that a more than three-quarters of Americans want a single-payer system (like Medicare), as least as a choice.
