THE GOP WON'T REPEAL IT...:

AP Poll: Repeal? Many wish health law went further (JENNIFER AGIESTA and RICARDO ALONSO-ZALDIVAR, 9/25/10, Associated Press).

A new AP poll finds that Americans who think the law should have done more outnumber those who think the government should stay out of health care by 2-to-1.

"I was disappointed that it didn't provide universal coverage," said Bronwyn Bleakley, 35, a biology professor from Easton, Mass.

More than 30 million people would gain coverage in 2019 when the law is fully phased in, but another 20 million or so would remain uninsured. Bleakley, who was uninsured early in her career, views the overhaul as a work in progress.

The poll found that about four in 10 adults think the new law did not go far enough to change the health care system, regardless of whether they support the law, oppose it or remain neutral. On the other side, about one in five say they oppose the law because they think the federal government should not be involved in health care at all.


...they'll make it truly universal but more market driven, by favoring HSAs over other private options and making them virtually the only option for those who don't purchase their own insurance.
