Single-payer healthcare is growingly increasingly popular in the United States, according to a Pew Research Center poll released Friday.
33 percent of poll respondents said they favor a single-payer system, in which the government covers medical expenses with tax money, over the current system based on private insurance companies.
That's an increase of five percentage points since January, and twelve points since single payer was polled in December 2015.
60 percent of Americans who were surveyed said the federal government is responsible for providing healthcare coverage to all Americans, compared to 39 percent who said it was not the government’s job.
The poll comes a day after Senate Republicans unveiled the first draft of their plan to repeal ObamaCare.
Like I have said before the Republicans may actually be inadvertently pushing this country toward single payer, and clearly the American people are ready for it.
Just the other day Rand Paul said, and I quote, "What I'd like to do is legalize inexpensive insurance, and you should be able to get insurance for $1 a day. I mean, you really should."
Well I have news for Mr. I Have a Squirrel Toupee, thirty dollar a month for insurance premiums would only be possible through a single payer system that every single American had signed onto.
And the best way to do that is through a government program like Medicaid or Medicare.
So essentially the Republicans want single payer health care as well, they are just too stupid to realize it.
