who all here is for health care but just not by our current government?
i mean seriously? if the government would make health care universal for all and were to solve all the cost issues and if people would make SOME effort to take care of themselves (they're not gonna do that free or no many of them.... but oh well)... and would make it to where you could still get the private stuff if you wanted it for whatever reason, would you be for government run health care?
one argument i hear is that r&d would go down. i have a hard time believing that. i would think it would stay the same or maybe be spent on things that actually cure problems instead of just symptoms.
anyway... there's the poll. and please post your opinion below too.

triumph by convincing its opponents and making them
see the light,
but rather because its opponents eventually die"
Arthur Shopenhauer: "Every truth passes through three stages before it is recognized.
First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is opposed. Third, it is regarded as self evident."

I remained silent;I was not a communist.
When they locked up the social democrats,I remained silent;
I was not a social democrat.When they came for the trade unionists,I did not speak out;
I was not a trade unionist.When they came for the Jews,
I remained silent;I wasn't a Jew.When they came for me,
there was no one left to speak out."
