Lets break what's not really broken....

Forty-eight percent (48%) of U.S. voters now rate the U.S. health care system as good or excellent. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey shows that just 19% rate it as poor.

These figures reflect a significant increase in support for the health care system over the past few months. In May, just 35% of adults nationwide rated the system as good or excellent. A year ago, just 29% of Likely Voters rated the system in such positive terms.
Rasmussen polling here. Lots of other tidbits in the polling story too. Have a look.

Now that there has been a national discussion on healthcare, people have had a chance to look at the issue, reflect on it and are increasingly realizing what they already have is pretty good and are rightly concerned that the dead hand of government intervention will probably reduce the typical person's access, increase the cost and reduce quality and innovation.

So, of course, Democrats will not be satisfied until they completely control every aspect of American life, including; what you eat, what you drive, your relationship between you and almost every service provider ultimately leading to Orwellian Marxism.
