"85% of people with health insurance today are happy with it....."

You mean, 85% are grateful that they have health insurance rather than not having any health insurance?

Or do you mean, 85% are satisfied with their health (medical) care they get from their doctor or clinic or hospital?

Let's not confuse either of these with the deceptive, misleadingly worded "are satisfied with their 'healthcare'" line we hear..not unless you can show a poll with the wording actually asking something that asks:

"Are you completely satisfied, and confident, that if you got a serious, but very expensive illness, that your private insurer would not look for ways to deny coverage or cover less by finding something in an obscure part of the fineprint?"

I'll believe that 85% agree with that statement when I see evidence of that..or when pigs fly...
