Single Payer - When?

The Washington Monthly has a post concerning some recent data released by Steven Benen discussing public support for a single payer health care in the United States.  He states,

I'm convinced Americans would embrace the idea if it were on the policy table. Consider the polling data:

Many adults in the United States believe their federal administration is not doing enough to help them with the cost of medical services, according to a poll by Princeton Survey Research Associates for the Pew Research Center for the People and the Press. 70 per cent of respondents think the government spends too little on health care.

Asked if they thought the government spends too much, too little or the right amount on health care, it wasn't even close — 70% of poll respondents said the government spends too little. Asked if they thought the average American spends too much, too little or the right amount on health care, the results were nearly identical — 65% said people spend too much.
