* well this should take the wind out of those smug pubby's sails like that Sarah Palin, who is editorializing in the WSJ. Pubby;s have been clamoring that the public doesn't want a PUBLIC PLAN. Well here you go, and Rasmussen is no liberal think tank politico folks.

Seventy-eight percent (78%) of U.S. voters say every American should be allowed to purchase the same health insurance plan that members of Congress use.

Unlike many issues related to the contentious debate over so-called health care reform, there is little disagreement on this question across all demographic categories. In its question, Rasmussen Reports did not describe the congressional health plan in any way, merely identifying it as the “health insurance plan that members of Congress use.”
The survey also found that 35% of voters believe everyone should pay the same amount for health care regardless of how often they see the doctor and have medical tests. But 44% say that’s a bad idea. Twenty-one percent (21%) don’t know which is better.
