Public Wants Gov. Out of Medicare

The health care debate in our country seems to be driven by bad information. Feministe reports that 62% of Republicans want the government to "stay out of Medicare." If you weren't aware, Medicare is a federal entitlement program. Oddly, 24% of Democrats and 31% of independents feel the same way.

This is probably why Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh get away with trashing Obama's health care reform bill while criticizing cuts in Medicare spending.

Original survey from Public Policy Polling.
