Are the American people clamoring for anything with regard to health care reform? I haven't heard the ruckus, but at the same time I think we're all agreed that some things need fixing.
In theory, Americans think the health care system needs to be fixed and they like many of the ideas Democrats are promoting. But they don't like the specific proposals taking shape because they do not think they will benefit them personally.
It's hard to imagine that anyone, though, with a full understanding of what's going on, would want to turn the entire medical system in this country over to the federal government in order to get 8% of the population an insurance policy.
