UPDATE: Americans Favor Public Health Care; GOP Keeps Trash Talking

A new New York Times/CBS News poll published Sunday morning shows Americans overwhelmingly support a public option for health care. And contrary to the view of Republicans on taxes, most Americans are willing to pay higher taxes to pay for universal coverage.

A whopping 72% of all Americans say they favor a government-administered plan to cover everyone. This includes 87% of Democrats, 62% of Independents and 50% of Republicans in the survey. Moreover, 57% say they are willing to pay higher taxes so everyone can be covered.

The original post appeared on Thursday.
