Democratic Threat or bluff? Would Democrats really be willing to thumb their nose to “We the People?”
From The Drudge Report … NYT: DEMS PLAN TO GO IT ALONE ON HEATHCARE… DEVELOPING
After trying to pull a fast one on the American people and attempting unsuccessfully to push Obamacare through before the August recess, Democrats now look to ram government controlled Obamacare through alone, according to the NY Times.
Given hardening Republican opposition to Congressional health care proposals, Democrats now say they see little chance of the minority’s cooperation in approving any overhaul, and are increasingly focused on drawing support for a final plan from within their own ranks.
All this while in Town Hall meetings across the country Americans voice their disapproval with government run health care. Even the NBC New Poll has 47% opposed to Obamacare while 43% are in favor.
However, it is hard to imagine that this is not a bluff on the part of Democrats. In order to pull off a bluff, some times you have to be holding the cards. In this case, on face value they may have the votes in numbers of Democrats in the House and Senate, but they hardly do in reality. A one sided Democratic vote for socialized medicine and Obamacare is a sure fire one way ticket out of DC for Democrats in 2010 and 2012. The people have made their feelings known just how they feel about Obamacare and it would be political suicide. They would lose the Independent vote forever.
