So in your liberal thinking, a senate controlled by democrats, voting to not pass the bill, or a liberal president vetoing the bill, that shuts down the government is the fault of the conservatives???
I swear, I'll never understand the liberal blame game.
if the public option were popular the senate with its sixty dems and pelosi's place with her plurality of seventy six woulda passed it
if the mandate were admired mr manchin wouldn't have campaigned against it
if the govt shuts down it will be because the prez vetoed appropriations
Just under 60 percent of those surveyed said they would like a public option as part of any final healthcare reform legislation, which Republicans and a few Democrats oppose.

* Believe in public option: 59.9 percent yes, 40.1 percent no.
* 86 percent of Democrats support the public option versus 57 percent of Independents and 33 percent of Republicans.
Most in U.S. want public health option: poll | ReutersA new national survey conducted between April 6th and 10th by researchers from Indiana University’s Center for Health Policy and Professionalism Research (CHPPR) finds that while 58% of Americans support repealing the law a majority of those that favor repeal want Congress to pass more liberal legislation that includes a public option:
When asked how important they thought it was for Congress to work on “establishment of a public option that would give individuals a choice between government provided health insurance or private health insurance,” 67 percent of Americans rated this as an important topic to address. This finding is even more striking given the fact that 59 percent of those in favor of repealing the health care reform legislation rated the public option as important to pursue. Another surprise is that 67 percent of Republicans and 59 percent of Independents also agreed that the public option was an important topic to be addressed by Congress.
