Say what?

In a recent Gallup survey, 89% of Republicans, 64% of independents, and 61% of Americans overall say Americans themselves -- rather than the government -- have the primary responsibility for ensuring that they have health insurance. Six in 10 Democrats say the government should be primarily responsible.

What do you think?
Personal responsibility or Governments?

  • Gee PsWifey, who pissed in your Wheaties this morning? You can disagree without calling everyone hypocrites. Otherwise you are no better than those you are criticizing.



    I am for personal responsibility with a safety net in place for the poor and disabled.

  • Personal responsibility
    In terms of actual health care (not insurance) it should be:
    Personal responsibility
    Then family members
    Then charities, churches, and communities.

  • well i do agree that it should be somewhat of a personal responsibility however it is not always possible. My dh has insurance through his work but, the insurance they offer won't cover him to see the specialist he needs for his disease (he has AS)  and for us to buy private insurance would cost like 450 dollars a month which we can't afford and so because of that i do think that there needs to be some reform done to help people that need it.
