The People You'll Meet

At a barbeque today, I listened to two mothers stress over whether or not they were going to get their children vaccinated. Why? They didn't trust the government on the safety and benefit of vaccines. Okay, fair enough, but since they each drove a van that each had a "Hillary for President" sticker, I had to ask them if they were in favor of Universal Health Insurance from the government. Indeed, both of them were.

I'm curious as to how one lives with the internal contradiction of not trusting the government on the safety of vaccination but do trust the government on all things health care? Also, I wonder how many of these people are out there?
