    I plan on enlisting in the Marine Corps after college. Hopefully Tricare still works by then.

    I guess now is where we get into the "my poll is better" mode.
    You should have read the poll. The question was, should government provide health insurance...it didn't say single-payer. It left room for interpretation. Some may have thought they meant single payer, some may have thought it was referring to Medicare, others may have been thinking of a public option. The question is to vague to infer a definite support of a single-payer system.

    Americans are more likely today to embrace the idea of the government providing health insurance than they were 30 years ago. 59% say the government should provide national health insurance, including 49% who say such insurance should cover all medical problems.

    National health insurance is not nec. 'single-payer'... so your post is kind of pointless..and misleading.
    this one has more examples and is probably a lot more specific:

    1. The economy was the top issue for most voters, not health care.
    2. The polls indicate that the majority of Americans either support the health care reform law, or oppose it because it didn't go far enough.
    3. Two years ahead of the next election, you have no idea what the mood of the national electorate will be.
    4. If Obama supported repealing health care reform, he would lose practically the entirety of his liberal base, thus dooming his chances at reelection.
    5. You don't want Obama to win reelection anyway, so I'm not particularly inclined to believe you are arguing in good faith when you claim he could help his reelection chances by doing what you want.
    6. Even if he doesn't get reelected and even if health care reform was the sole reason (which is a pretty dubious assumption), I really don't care. Health care reform is more important than having a Democratic president.
    Are you coming to bed?
    I can't. This is important.

    Kandahar is correct. A lot of people who don't like the health care bill, don't like it because it didn't go far enough in regulating and reigning in the abuses of the health care industry. Unless the Republicans have an alternative that does more than Obama's plan, their repeal will be pretty empty.
