Greater Optimism ?

About U.S. Health System Coverage, Costs

Interesting results as long as you're only talking about America, but what happens when Mr. Gallup goes to Canada, UK or France or Spain or Switzerland or Germany or Holland or anywhere else? Just wondering.


  1. The fact that so many are satisfied really doesn't mean much. Americans wouldn't have the system you do if everybody was totally dissatisfied, enough people have to be satisfied for it to be so difficult to change the status quo. If the majority are satisfied that they get what they need at the expense of many who do not, then this poll says more about where people's heads are at than about the quality of the system.

  2. The only saving grace was the fact that the 'satisfied' numbers never rose above 50%. So at least more than half of us aren't all that happy...
