(Do you think it is the responsibility of the federal government to make sure all Americans have health care coverage, or is that not the responsibility of the federal government?) (If Yes, ask:) Should health insurance be provided through a single national health insurance system run by the government, or continue to be provided through a mix of private insurance companies and government programs? (If No, ask:) Should the government not be involved in providing health insurance at all, or continue programs like Medicare and Medicaid for seniors and the very poor?
