    Fifty-one percent (51%) of U.S. voters oppose the creation of a single-payer national health insurance plan overseen by the federal government, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey.

    Most Voters Say Leave My Health Insurance Alone

    Health care reform is near the top of the list for incoming President Barack Obama and congressional Democrats, but a majority of U.S. voters (58%) oppose any kind of government-controlled health plan if it means they have to change their own insurance coverage.

    It's a good thing Obama didn't propose a single payer system or he may not have been elected. Contrary to all the rumors from the right, Obama has never proposed a socialist health care plan. Hillary's plan came closer to being socialist than Obama and Hillary's plan would have covered far more American's.

    How does this set of 51% compare to the 50% of all Americans who carry an average $8000 balance on their credit cards or are they mostly the 50% who are free and clear of non-mortgage debt?

    All you out there who will buy Christmas presents on credit? I should respect your opinion on any economic or business related topic?

    Debt-free here for years...and I think that government healthcare is a terrible idea.

    Why would I want the architects of FEMA, the $700B bailout, the IRS, Walter Reed Army Medical Center, and Congress to be in charge of my healthcare?
