Dueling for public support. Americans go gunning for managed-care plans as they stand by their docs.

Abstract

If healthcare were a movie western, Americans would costume their doctors in white hats and HMOs in black hats. They'd cast hospitals as the Wild West merchant watching the gunfight from the doorway of his shop and themselves as the frightened townspeople waiting for the smoke to clear. That's the simple version of the complex portrait of U.S. public opinion on healthcare as painted by polling firms and survey organizations.
