  •  I think the NYT/CBS question is good... (3+ / 0-)

    "Would you favor or oppose the government offering everyone a government administered health insurance plan - something like the Medicare coverage that people 65 and older get - that would compete with private health insurance plans?"

    It covers:

    1. universal (offering everyone)
    1. government administered
    1. references something they know about (Medicare)
    1. competition with private plans

    And it gets 66% support, even though it doesn't mention that people will pay premiums. People covered by Medicare don't -- their premiums are paid by other people. This question could imply a free plan.

    Of course you'd say have the brainpan of a stagecoach tilter!
