Do Americans Want Health Care Reform?

The Republican Party and their spokesmen in the press are saying the American people don't want heath care reform. Not true!
by Charlie Leck

To a man (and woman) the Republicans leaving the White House today were saying to the press -- and saying it loudly -- that Americans don't want health care reform.

The fact is they do, but this isn't the first time in the last couple of decades that the Republican Party was willing to fudge on the truth.

Most solid and trustworthy America polls show that over 50 percent do want health care refore. About 38 percent have no opinion. So it is a tiny percentage that actually oppose a change in our health care delivery system.

But, in this debate, let's not let the facts get in the way. In a Democracy, the minority is not supposed to get it's way; but, frankly, that is exactly what is happening in America today -- both in the U.S. Congress and in the general public. Politics don't work in America right now. The minority has too much power and can bully the majority around. How did this happen? That's a good subject for a blog another day.
