    You could spend all day rating these questions.

    They never end.

    What is the value?

    Is someone accumulating, sorting, combining, and going to respond?

      Get more attention to the questions kossacks care about?

      We may not get there in one year or even one term, but America - I have never been more hopeful than I am tonight that we will get there. Obama 11/4/08

        I was just searching for anything to do with "single payer". It looks like the insurance companies have already attacked! Unfortunately, the only questions that will likely rise to the top are those that don't have opposition from corporate entities!

          "Will you study how healthcare is paid for and managed in single-payer countries (such as Canada) in order to determine how it costs less for them to cover everyone (and actually pay the bills) than it costs for the U.S. to cover only some people?"

          "Corporate entities" aren't being terribly successful at keeping this out of the discussion.

      I'm guessing they'll answer the top rated questions. We don't know yet. The thing hasn't really been announced.

      This reminds of a nifty online petition system that the UK has. You make a petition and then the Government responds to the highly signed petitions. The question format is more like an Internet press conference, but I except we'll see more of this sort of thing in the future.
