Colorado business forum supports single payer
Tuschhoff posed a series of key questions surrounding the issue, utilizing electronic devices for attendees at Thursday's forum to give their answers anonymously. Though the results were hardly a scientific polling of the local community, she said it's interesting that many of the responses were similar to those she's gotten at other events she has facilitated.
Asked if a single-payer system — essentially Medicare-style coverage extended to all citizens — is the solution, 52 percent of those at Thursday's forum agreed it is, while 26 percent were neutral and 22 percent disagreed with such a system.
the results were more polarizing.
Again, 52 percent agreed that a public option should be offered, while 39 percent said it should not and just 9 percent were neutral.
