A new Gallup Poll shows most Americans want the government to take on a bigger role in health care.
More than 1,500 people from across the country were surveyed, and 58 percent favor replacing the provisions set up by the Affordable Care Act with a federally funded health care program.
The ACA, or Obamacare, lets Americans buy insurance through the federal government, but the survey shows most citizens want the government to just pay for everything, or at least thats what theyre saying now. In recent years, Americans have waffled on whether the government should pay their medical bills.
Polls show that Americans largely said the government had an obligation to provide health care during the George W. Bush administration, peaking at 69 percent in 2007.
After Obama was elected, support dropped off and opinions became more evenly split. But backing for a single-payer plan appears to be on the upswing. After Obama was elected, support dropped off and opinions became more evenly split. But backing for a single-payer plan appears to be on the upswing.

Obamacare is accomplishing its objective, which is "single payer." Progressives never quit, which is why they never lose the war.
I have a co-worker who says she wants government healthcare ... and for the government to pay for all of her retirement.
they don’t realize “we the people” are the guvment.
So, what these people want is for somebody else to pay for their healthcare. Imagine their surprise when they find out that government provided health is even more expensive and provides less service.
This is probably a poll paid for by people who want a single payer and questions were asked to generate the desired outcome.
Ask them who they think is really paying for it.
They probably took the poll at a #FeeltheBern rally.
I want the government to pay my bar tab.
So, what else is not ‘nationalizable’ then?
Most of us have cars, and also have to pay through the nose for car insurance. So when we take the car in for an oil change, we turn in the bill to our car insurance carrier, right? Maybe we ought to have the government pay for our oil changes, too?
Oh, and as for the quality of health care, do you really think the government is going to provide a quality product? Go to your local DMV license branch, and ask if these are the people and system you want when you have a compound leg fracture or breast cancer.
Same logic, or lack thereof.
The American people are getting the country they want, and they are going to get it good and hard.
This is the “real Obama Legacy!”
The consequences of that hijacking are several generations of indoctrinated children and adults who do not understand that "government is power" and that power, once entrenched, leads to loss of freedom for all but the political class.
They’re eating cats in the workers paradise of Venezuela.
A poll designed to get the answer “they” want. Government controlled “health care” was the goal all along.
“This is probably a poll paid for by people who want a single payer and questions were asked to generate the desired outcome.”
Well, when you already have 47% of our country on the dole, this isn’t much of a stretch.
B S survey.
Made as instructed.
In 15 years the discussion of who pays for health care will become completely moot because there won’t be any doctors to provide health care anyway.
