Hey, here’s a novel idea—I’ll get my own health insurance!
A new Gallup poll indicates that the majority of Americans might go for that idea:
In a recent Gallup survey, 89% of Republicans, 64% of independents, and 61% of Americans overall say Americans themselves — rather than the government — have the primary responsibility for ensuring that they have health insurance. Six in 10 Democrats say the government should be primarily responsible.
The real meaning of this poll? That the current debate over health care is an attempt to foist upon us something we don’t want. Who does want it? Six in 10 Democrats. That’s what this is all about, folks.
