From the story:
“On the one hand, the American public overwhelmingly favors a choice between getting insurance coverage either through the private market or a government run option. Indeed, 76 percent of respondents said it was either “extremely” or “quite” important to “give people a choice of both a public plan administered by the federal government and a private plan for their health insurance.”
In the same NBC/WSJ poll, only 33 percent of respondents said they thought the president’s health care plan, to the extent they knew of it, was a “good idea;” 32 percent said it was a bad idea.”
The story draws the conclusion that the public is confused because of Obama’s messaging. While that is partly true, I think the public is confused because the public is always confused. And who wouldn’t be. Once again, thank you to CBS, NBC, ABC, CNN, MSNBC and FOX.
