Politics and healthcare

I always think politics and healthcare should be separate issues. I am also not blogging about political issues - I am in my quadrennial political avoidance mode. But I find this issue interesting. Would you change your presidential vote based on the issue of healthcare? According to CNN it is making people think in several swing states (they just use the term swing to confuse us all).

The big issue is that people who have always voted with the Republican party and enjoying the benefits of the healthcare reform act. They realize that if Romney wins they may lose these benefits.

I think this shows how divisive politics have become and how messed up our healthcare system  is. If Americans' politics are swayed by a single issue, our health care system must be in very bad shape.l
