    National Healthcare Poll

    This is fascinating.

    American voters disapprove 56 - 17 percent, with 26 percent undecided, of the Republican health care plan to replace Obamacare, the Affordable Care Act, according to a Quinnipiac University national poll released today. Support among Republicans is a lackluster 41 - 24 percent.

    If their U.S. Senator or member of Congress votes to replace Obamacare with the Republican health care plan, 46 percent of voters say they will be less likely to vote for that person, while 19 percent say they will be more likely and 29 percent say this vote won't matter, the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University Poll finds.

    Disapproval of the Republican plan is 56 - 22 percent among men, 56 - 13 percent among women, 54 - 20 percent among white voters, 64 - 10 percent among non-white voters, 80 - 3 percent among Democrats, 58 - 14 percent among independent voters and by margins of 2-1 or more in every age group.

    But this is particularly interesting.

    And yet, board Republicans keep posting like this is the best thing since sliced bread and much better than the ACA.

    What is "Medicare For All," and on what basis are respondents determining their approval or disapproval of it?

    I'm also curious why a mere third of Americans "approve" of our health care industry.

    Here's the reality that kills this law one way or another: the health insurance industry is not invincible. It could implode as a result of an adverse selection death spiral. The GOP and conservatives have their heads completely in the sand about this, and haven't a clue what to do about it.

    This will sound crazy and absurd and counterintuitive, but what they should do is staring them in the face: introduce single payer. They can deal with accusations of hypocrisy and flip-flopping, big fucking deal in the grand scheme of things. It's the only right and intelligent thing to do, and ironically enough, it could save the party. A collapsed health insurance and subsequently health care industry, on the other hand, could sink the party.

    Yeah... but with this new administration we must first ask ourselves: "Is it good for Russia?"

    Yes, that is what they SHOULD do, but republiCons never will. They don't give a ratz azz if people die...they DO want the defund PP and big TAX CUT that are tacked on to this current wretched bill that they are trying to foist upon US. WE, the People, pay for their platinum healthcare (and all of them are wealthy enough to afford private insurance), so they just don't/won't concern themselves with those who don't enjoy the same benefit.

    I believe "MediCare for All" is equivalent to the "government option" that GOPers demanded be cut from the ACA...single payer. THEY.DO.NOT.CARE.

    Medicare for all is essentially single payer and people base their opinion of it on the fact that they either use it themselves or know people who do.

    2/3 of people disapprove of our health care industry because it sucks. It's expensive and not user friendly at all.

    How do you figure "they" don't pay the costs? Medical debt is the number one reason that Americans file for bankruptcy.
