And that's a good thing. We all know that American Health Care isn't all that great, by our standards, but is far better than anywhere else. Just look at Canada, Britain and most of Europe. Anyway, our medical care could get a whole lot better if the federal government got OUT of American Health Care. Why? It isn't in the United States Constitution for the feds to get involved and that's including the senior prescriptioin deal, Medicare, Medicaid and all of the ignorant and retarded PPO, HOM or any other retarded group.
[...] Forty-nine percent (49%) of voters nationwide now rate the U.S. health care system as good or excellent. That marks a steady increase from 44% at the beginning of October, 35% in May and 29% a year-and-a-half ago.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just 27% now say the U.S. health care system is poor.
It is interesting to note that confidence in the system has improved as the debate over health care reform has moved to center stage. The latest polling shows that only 38% favor the health care legislation currently working its way through Congress.
Most liberal voters (51%) now rate the current health care system as poor. However, 62% of conservatives say it’s good or excellent. Among political moderates, 44% say the health care system is good or excellent while 26% say it’s poor. [...]
Ed at HA adds:
[...] That’s not to say that people believe it’s perfect. A majority of Republicans (54%) and a large plurality of independents (45%) believe that minor changes are needed to the system, presumably around cost. Among all respondents, 62% said that cost was the biggest problem in the current system; only 18% said a lack of universal coverage. Majorities of Republicans (70%), independents (67%), and Democrats (52%) agree on that point. Only 5% of Republicans and 17% of independents thought universal coverage was the primary issue in American health care, and for that matter, only 30% of Democrats think so, too. [...]
Costs? Get the fedeal government out of the health care business and have them turn to constitutional issues and that will take care of that.
And, according to the PelosiCare, ReidCoCare and ObamaCare, this pathetic federal health care Bill is going to decrease health care costs where nothing of the sort is true. Then, here comes Howard EEEEARG Dean:
Is Howard Dean reclaiming the populist crown? The former presidential candidate and governor of Vermont appeared on Air America’s Bill Press radio show and blasted the ObamaCare bill — in both its House and Senate forms. During the interview, Dean insisted that the current efforts did nothing to control costs, and amounted to nothing more than a bailout for the insurance companies. He urged progressives in Congress to oppose the bill, especially if the public option gets stripped out. And he said, “Republicans are right about the rhetoric of this bill” [...]
Progressives? Like the Marxist-sociopaths? Screw them. Just oppose this unconstituional Bill and be done with it.
[...] From the Bill Press Show, on November 24, 2009, Howard Dean admits Obamacare will cost a trillion dollars, there’s no reform, and it is harmful. But he also says it’s ok as long as there’s a public option.
49% of Americans now believe the current US health care system is good or excellent. This is up from 29% a year and a half ago. [...]
Public Option. Dean. Asshat.
[...] If Dems won’t listen to Republicans, maybe they’ll listen to the former DNC Chair — although Howard seems to be making the mistake of analyzing the bill from a practical standpoint when in fact the only intent of Reid/Pelosi/Obamacare is as a launching pad for an industry takeover. “Health care reform” has little to nothing to do with health care, Howard. Maybe he hasn’t gotten the internal memo yet. [...]
Like I said. The democrats just might listen to the idiot that says the Bill is OK with a Public Option. I wonder where all of that is in the United States Constitution?

[...] The evidence in their own words, in the leaked emails that were being withheld from a Freedom of Information request is already deeply incriminating. Even worse for their scientific case, the underlying database they used was hopelessly mis-organized and altered on an ad hoc basis, as demonstrated by Marc Sheppard Wednesday.
Science still has accountability mechanisms. The refusal of the CRU to share its data, as the open science requirement demands, is already a scandal. But in light of the exchanges over manipulating the peer review process and the need use tricks to hide the decline, a full review of all their data is in order. Senator Inhofe, the ranking Republican on the environmental issues, is demanding an investigation. Science Magazine, the flagship of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, once virtually banned skeptical papers, but now is looking into the fraud.
Rush Limbaugh sagely warned his vast audience that if science does not discipline the miscreants, but allow junk science to stand, then science itself will lose public support. Fewer and fewer people are taken in by the scam. [...]
