This six-part series, originally posted on PNHP's blog, explores the research on American attitudes about a single-payer (or Medicare-for-all) system to evaluate the truth of the new version of the “yes but” argument. We will see that the research demonstrates that approximately two-thirds of Americans support a Medicare-for-all system despite constant attacks on Medicare and the systems of other countries by conservatives. The evidence supporting this statement is rock solid. The evidence against it — the focus group and polling “research” commissioned by the “option” movement's founders — is defective, misinterpreted, or both.
