The Senate Finance committee and Baucus / Grassley are the game to watch, but,
But, as to the poll question - doomed? No way, this baby's gonna pass.
The fight against the evil USSR consumed and shaped our national identity. Most people in their 30s and older had fear of communism and socialism drilled into them at a very very young age, so anything that sounds like it might be part of a belief system that we fought against for so long is not popular here. Although, oddly enough, for all the opposition tried to demonize obama as a "socialist" in the last election, what they seemed to have accomplished is convincing under-30s that socialism ain't that bad. Under 30s liked Obama in overwhelming numbers, and the opposition said he was a socialist, so now under 30s aren't afraid of socialism.
However, the individualist is a strong theme in our culture too, from our pioneer and immigrant history, probably.

The "right" you speak of revolves around the idea that you should get to choose your health care. That won't change with UHC. You just don't like the idea that your tax dollars would pay for someone else, that's all. It's this type of greed and distrust that is leading the U.S. down a dangerous divisionist path.
That's exactly right. I don't like the idea of my money being forcefully redistributed to strangers. What's wrong with that?The "right" you speak of revolves around the idea that you should get to choose your health care. That won't change with UHC.

Your entire system is setup to cater to the rich elites, and health care is one such aparatus: the pharmaceutical industry with its inflated prices, the insurance companies (and their corrupt, scheming rules), and the lack of public policy to regulate either.
The fact that you can only see ONE angle of the situation - "my money and no one else's" - is obscuring the fact that UHC, if done correctly, would create healthy competition and thus reduce costs for the common people. But no, all you can see is your individualist "mine mine mine" point of view.
America doesn't deserve UHC. Its people want to remain ill and ripped off.
