    Well, if you're like most Americans, the answer is Barack Obama.

    Poll: Obama has double-digit advantage on health care, Medicare - POLITICO.com
    Perhaps that's why Mitt is starting to embrace Obamacare.

    Myself. I dont trust the government at all.

    Odd that you dont mind the government telling you what to do with your body when it comes to health care

    What we have here is the proverbial rock and hard place. Trust the gov't or trust the HC free market, which essentially means trust the gov't to regulate that so-called free market. In the final analysis, do we trust the gov't to run HC or do we trust the gov't to do a better job of regulating the industry. Personally, I don't think the gov't can do a reasonable job either way, their track record sucks. If it was me, I'd get the federal gov't out of the HC business and leave it to the states to try different solutions. Chances are somebody will arrive at the best solutions, money is getting tighter all the time.

    Republicans say "let him die". That will cost more than preemptive health care.

    Actually, it is the democrats who will say "let him die", in the form of the IPAB that will decide who gets what treatment.

    I wish it weren't the case, but I find no comfort in being like "most Americans".

    Well, that's simply not true. If PPACA remains law they, in fact, tell you how you have to pay for it.
