How can right-wingers dispute these numbers?

first the right-wing side... used to claim democrats aren't on the majority side of health care... http://www.gallup.com/poll/102934/Majority-Americans-Satisfied-Their-Own-Healthcare.aspx Gallup's annual Healthcare survey, conducted Nov. 11-14, finds 57% of Americans saying they are satisfied with the total cost they pay for their healthcare, while 39% are dissatisfied. the democrat side...... if the poll is accurate for the entire population, lets do the math shall we? 39% insured of 300,000,000 = 117 million + 47 million uninsured = 164 million 164 million is more than 50% of 300 million, which makes more than a majority that will claim that things need to be changed. and no that doesn't include 20 million illegals, considering the number is as of 2005 which is consideribly higher now. Even in 2005 80% of that number included working Americans.

Well gee 57% IS the majority. If they are paying for it then they must have it.You don't qualify this number as insured vs uninsured Americans. Is that what you mean? Your numbers are also skewed because no poll is accurate for the entire population.Your 47 million uninsured number is in question as well. It doesn't jive up with reallity. Medicade and state programs probably cover most of those included as "uninsured". As for the illegals, who cares? Not my problem.

No where in those numbers does it say that 100% of the 39% want socialized healthcare. I'm not happy with the cost of DVDs should we make that a government product? I hate paying $750/mo to insure my family, but I hate more paying $800/mo to pay for somebody elses and in turn get less effective coverage for my family.

Fuzzy math at it's best. How exactly do you add 47 million uninsured twice? The original numbers already included the unisured, using your analogy add 117 million + 117 million and you will come up with a majority who are happy with satisfied vs not satisfied.

Did it ever occur to you that a person could be unhappy about the price of their insurance on one hand and on the other hand, NOT believe that national healthcare is the answer?

Boy, can you spin the numbers! That 57%-39% includes people who are not insured. Don't worry, I am sure there are morons out there who believe your propaganda though. Do you sell used cars? PS: I did read the survey description, but not on the link you provided. The respondents had to have paid for medical care. They did not have to have been insured. The link you provided implies the respondents paid insurance premiums, and not in general for medical care. The respondents included people who did not have insurance.

IT DOESN'T MATTER WHAT YOU WANT. IT MATTERS WHAT IS FAIR. Taking from the rich and giving to the poor is cute for movies, but unjust in real life.
