    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.

    The new polling also shows that 80% of those with insurance rate their own coverage as good or excellent. That’s up from 70% in May.

    Yep, we are not pleased with our high deductibles and premiums, but I'll take what I have ANY day over what Obamacare proposes. I like my doctors, I like being able to get my medications refilled every month without having to worry if there is a shortage. I like getting in to see my doctor within the same day or 24 hours if I am sick. I like knowing my grandchildren can get in to see their pediatrician without having to wait weeks if they are running a fever. I like knowing that whatever I discuss with my doctor stays in my doctor's office and is only shared by the hospital or insurance company if I sign the permission to release certain records. I like knowing that should I have to go to the hospital for a dreadful accident, that I will receive care, that should I be unconscious or unable to make decisions, that care will be rendered anyway to try and save my life (even though I am an organ donor).

    Above all, I like the TRUST that is worthy to be placed among healthcare professionals in our current healthcare system - because people doing their jobs to provide it are not worried about the bottom line or whether the care rendered will be too costly......unlike the scenario that will play out under Obamacare.

    People are seeing the obama form of health care just like so many failures all over the world, and have decided ours isn't as bad as they thought, not when faced with it getting much worse.
