With the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee holding its hearing today on remaking the U.S. health care system, Gallup is out with a new poll finding that Americans trust doctors and hospitals with health care reform more than any politicians. At the same time, though President Obama is actively deceiving Americans when it comes to costs, choice, supporting what works, and the involvement of government, people still find him far more credible than Republicans. Putting everything else aside, that may prove the difference in the health care fight. If Americans believe President Obama when he says that he’s going to cut costs, cover everybody, improve the quality of care, allow everybody to keep their current insurance, while averting tax increases, rationing, or a government takeover, the actual facts may not matter.
