    Doctors support universal health care: survey
    Mon Mar 31, 2008

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - More than half of U.S. doctors now favor switching to a national health care plan and fewer than a third oppose the idea, according to a survey published on Monday.
    The survey suggests that opinions have changed substantially since the last survey in 2002 and as the country debates serious changes to the health care system.

    Of more than 2,000 doctors surveyed, 59 percent said they support legislation to establish a national health insurance program, while 32 percent said they opposed it, researchers reported in the journal Annals of Internal Medicine.

    No, actually they will make less, but there paperwork, liability insurance, and overhead will be less.

    Suuuuuuuure they do.

    Of course, the questions and methodology of the purported poll aren't mentioned.

    That is why every other Western democracy in the world has universal healthcare, because it is cheaper and better.

    Only right wing Americans are too dumb to get it.

    So typical of you to lamely attempt to divert from the fact that the questions and methodology of the alleged poll were omitted, to vomit up yet another of your platitudinous bumper sticker yammering points....Speaking of dumb.

    Only partisan hacks like you are unwilling to look at all the factors. Go figure you would ignore all but the one common policy ... and even then you fail since your statement is completely false.

    You'll disagree with anything that counters your opinion. Not too bright.

    To the point that they totally ignore facts, so they can accept the crap fed them by big Pharma, and private insurance.
