This poll proves that a majority of Americans want health reform. This is not a poll asking if Americans want some reform or no reform, it is a poll that is asking if they support Obama's plan.

I am going to get ripped apart by conservatives, and if the Democrats had started off with passing various elements of health reform without using the word "overhaul" it would have passed quietly without a lot of media attention. We can't go back in time; it is pointless. Expand the minimum income level to provide medicaid, make it illegal to discriminate against pre-existing conditions, and I am okay with tort reform and promote co-operatives. If we have more affordable and better health care coverage, I think our number of medical lawsuits will decrease.

Obama won the election and progressives did not see this anti-government storm around us.
