Just 5 percent say coverage for all should be top healthcare priority for new Congress: Poll

Although the liberal push to expand Medicare to everybody has received a lot of attention in the past year, a new poll suggests the issue is off the radar for most Americans.

In the survey, the Kaiser Family Foundation asked respondents to react to an open-ended question: "Thinking about next year, which healthcare issue would you most like the next Congress to act on in 2019?"

Among the answers, 19 percent named "affordability and cost"; 10 percent named the Affordable Care Act (aka Obamacare); 6 percent named Medicare; and just 5 percent said, "Healthcare/insurance for everyone."

Your own health should be the number one responsibility of YOU, not someone else.

If you have ever looked into Medicare, you would not wan t it to be everyone's insurance program. It is needlessly complicated and not that affordable. Vision and dental plans are add-ons.
The silly idea that it is "free" is nonsense. Every working adult pays into the "free" program. And, unlike obamacare, there are plenty of insurance companies participating. Obviously, it is a money maker for them.
Be careful what you wish for, you might just regret it.

Just be fit and healthy. THAT is your responsibility and don't fear death. Health care just ushers along too many useless people.

Well you voted in a bunch of socialist whose main goal is to get your health insurance into a single payer system so buckle up. They don’t care about what you want
