    Fixed to reflect the truth not the drug addled ramblings of a mind numbed robot.

    To say that 6 of 10 Americans want The Obumbler's health plan is a lie because they did not poll every single person in America. When they do that come see us with your poll. Till then, the poll that only asked 1031 people their opinions means less than what my dog leaves in the backyard.

    I agree, and if you had any sense you would see that the public option IS NOT in Obamas plan, and that this poll asks about the public option.

    6 in 10 want the public option.

    A public OPTION you fucktard. Since you're either too stupid, lazy, or dishonest to look it up, allow me to look up the word option for you:

    Main Entry: 1op·tion
    Pronunciation: \ˈäp-shən\
    Function: noun
    Etymology: French, from Latin option-, optio free choice; akin to Latin optare to choose
    Date: 1593

    1 : an act of choosing
    2 a : the power or right to choose : freedom of choice b : a privilege of demanding fulfillment of a contract on any day within a specified time c : a contract conveying a right to buy or sell designated securities, commodities, or property interest at a specified price during a stipulated period; also : the right conveyed by an option d : a right of an insured person to choose the form in which payments due on a policy shall be made or applied
    3 : something that may be chosen: as a : an alternative course of action <didn't have many options open> b : an item that is offered in addition to or in place of standard equipment
    4 : an offensive football play in which a back may choose whether to pass or run with the ball —called also option play
    synonyms see choicehttp://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/option
    Did you read any of that? See where it says that an option is something to be chosen? An alternative course of action? An act of choosing? From the Latin "optio" meaning free choice? That means they wouldn't mind a public option or choice. Something they can choose or choose not to participate. Not public option that in your puny mind means to completely control or be the only option. Learn to read and learn to understand before you post such dreck.

    q6 Do you approve or disapprove of the way Barack Obama is handling health care?
    Approve 42 13 68 39 44
    Disapprove 50 82 25 53 48
    DK/NA 8 5 7 8 8
    Hmm, something's a little fishy here. Data's skewed all over the place. Besides, the problem is how "public option" is defined. If people see it as a free handout, then yes, they will be more inclined to support it. However, if they come to the realization that it means higher taxes and the abolishment of private insurance over a period of time, then I don't think you'll have as many supporters.

As for the public OPTION, they favor just that. An option. What you're ilk wants is not an option but total control. Now, go back and poll that same group of people and ask them if they favor the government plan being the only option and tell me how that poll works out.
    We already have a public option. You have the option to not work, spit out a litter of young'uns, sit back, call the ambulance because you have a sore pinky toe, go to the Emergence Room, let the taxpayers foot the bill. Happens all the time.

    And once again Stupidicus you gloss over the fact that 6 in 10 OF THE 1031 PEOPLE WHO WERE POLLED want the public option. To say that 6 in10 AMERICANS want it is a lie because THEY DID NOT POLL EVERYONE IN AMERICA.

    But then again you are a DUmbass and as we know DUmbasses lie, DUmbasses lie all the time.

    If you reject this poll , then you reject every single poll ever taken on the planet earth.

    Because no poll ever POLLS EVERYBODY.

    How fucking stupid are you guys ? ..you are now rejecting a poll because it didn't ask every single American ?

    WTF ?

    Why are you ignoring both my posts? Because they prove you to be an incredible dunderhead? If so, can't blame you then.

    It's quite possible that those six out of ten assumed that a public option meant "free" healthcare. I'm not surprised that six out of ten were in favor of it. I am surprised that it wasn't more.
