America’s most urgent health care problem

No, it’s not Ebola, but this from Gallup is too close for comfort.

Trend: What would you say is the most urgent health problem facing this country at the present time?

On the bright side, I’d say the nearly 40% consistently recognizing our actual problems is pretty encouraging (especially compared to the clueless “government interference” crowd).

But, Ebola more of a problem than obesity and cancer?!  Of course, I suspect the single word “urgent” helps pump up the Ebola numbers.  But still.  Get over it already America.  And if you are so damn worried about Ebola, give to MSF instead of banning Rwandan kids from schools.
