I believe in the free speech that liberals used to believe in, the economic freedom that conservatives used to believe in, and the personal freedom that America used to believe in.

Support For Health Care Reform Hits New Low

by @ 10:19 am on November 24, 2009. Filed under Barack Obama, Health Care Reform, Politics

The numbers continue to look bad for the Democrat’s health care reform plans:

Just 38% of voters now favor the health care plan proposed by President Obama and congressional Democrats. That’s the lowest level of support measured for the plan in nearly two dozen tracking polls conducted since June.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 56% now oppose the plan.

Half the survey was conducted before the Senate voted late Saturday to begin debate on its version of the legislation. Support for the plan was slightly lower in the half of the survey conducted after the Senate vote.

Prior to this, support for the plan had never fallen below 41%. Last week, support for the plan was at 47%. Two weeks ago, the effort was supported by 45% of voters.

Intensity remains stronger among those who oppose the push to change the nation’s health care system: 21% Strongly Favor the plan while 43% are Strongly Opposed.

If this bill does somehow pass, it will be one of the first times that I can remember an Congress simply ignoring popular will on such an important issue.

That’s bound to have implications for 2010.

    but you see the dems in congress fit into three groups… the ones that are worried about this (and hense why this hasnt passed yet), the ones that don’t give a damna nd would rather lose if it means they can get this rammed through, and the ones that buy into thier self delusions that they speek for the people and that this is really what they want. Lets hope the first group is large enough to block the latter two.

    well thats the problem… everyone is reckless… at this point im just hoping for some good old fasion gridlock.

  4. Clearly the democrats wish to keep fraud in health care instead of fixing it. Fraud is the real and only problem in private health care. Also it is the major
    problem in Medicare. But the democrats do not wish for the general public to know anything about free available health care or the fraud that is the major problem. This Obama care is the same as replacing a tire to fix the gas tank.
