54% Say No to Obamacare

August 15, 2009

thumb_down5 Brand new Rasmussen Poll numbers:

54% say no health care reform passed by Congress this year would be the better than passing the House bill.


“Middle income voters, those who earn from $40,000 to $75,000 a year, are most strongly in favor of taking no action.

A plurality of voters under 30 say passage of the Congressional legislation is better. A majority of adults over 30 take the opposite view.

Just 42% of U.S. voters now favor the plan while 53% are opposed. Those who oppose the effort feel more strongly about it.

One reason that the President has been careful to distinguish between his idea of health care reform and a single payer system is that just 32% favor Single-Payer health care while 57% are opposed.

What will happen when Congress return to DC? Will the Democrats continue to insist that town hall demonstrators are “not representative” of the American people? Will they pass this monstrous bill anyway, in spite of majority opposition of the people, like they did with Bush’s TARP and Obama’s Stimulus? By the way, how well have those two mega-sized, mega-expensive programs worked out so far? Just sayin’.

He declined to identify who will be asked to leave. ”

And the Wall Street Journal has a piece about Democrats working desperately to lower expectations.

Even as they depict a massive stimulus package as indispensable to turning the economy around, U.S. Democratic leaders are aggressively lowering expectations that the package will yield dramatic accomplishments quickly.

Rep. David Obey, who is playing a key role in assembling the stimulus plan, which is expected to approach $800 billion, said recently that an infusion of federal spending is “the only game in town.” But the Wisconsin Democrat, who is chairman of the House Appropriations Committee, was careful to add: “The downward momentum appears too strong to end the recession anytime soon.”

I’m not the least bit surprised but I am interested to see how long it takes for most Democratic voters to become disillusioned and disappointed. How does that go again… the more things change, the more they stay the same.
