By Rasmussen Reports


1* Do you favor or oppose a single-payer health care system where the federal government provides coverage for everyone?



2* Think for a moment about the health care law that was passed last year.  Should Congress repeal that law and do nothing to replace it; repeal the law and then replace it with only the most popular provisions; leave the current law in place and remove the most unpopular parts, or leave the current law in place and make no changes?



3* Which will do more to reduce the federal budget deficit – repealing last year’s health care law or allowing the law to be fully implemented?



4* What would do more to reduce health care costs—more free market competition between insurance companies or more government regulation?



5* When it comes to health care decisions, who do you fear the most: the federal government or private insurance companies?
