In poll, wide support for government-run health

New York Times, June 22, 2009

Americans overwhelmingly support substantial changes to the healthcare system and are strongly behind a government-run insurance plan to compete with private insurers, according to the a New York Times/CBS News poll. The poll found that most Americans would be willing to pay higher taxes so everyone could have health insurance and that they said the government could do a better job of holding down healthcare costs than the private sector.
