An NBC News survey released last night shows that a majority of Americans have a clear understanding of Barack Obama's health care plan, if by "clear understanding" you mean "Oh my God, a Yeti!"…
Some 45% said they believe the plan is likely to include such a provision that has become known as "death panels" despite bipartisan efforts by President Barack Obama and the provision’s author, Republican Georgia Sen. Johnny Isakson to dispel the idea.
Further, a majority of Americans (55%) believe the bill will extend health insurance coverage to illegal immigrants even though no proposals currently under negotiation would do so. An equally high number (54%) believe the overhaul will lead to a "complete" government takeover of the health care system, although there is also no actual proposal for that, either.
Well, look, I believe in unicorns, even though people keep telling me there's "no actual evidence" they exist. Really? Because last time I checked, horses exist. So do narwhals. You do the math.
Besides, if unicorns don't exist, how come I was able to find this photograph of one in the Getty Images database?
