Try as the MSM might to continue to provide cover, carry the water and even lie when it comes to how Americans feel about Barack Obama’s policies and Obamacare … a majority of Americans are against the health care plan backed by “The One”. Unlike some polling that skew the sampling, Scot Rasmussen remains one of the best and trusted pollers in the business.
In a recent Rasmussen Poll, 53% of American voters opposed Obamacare while only 44% were in favor. All summer long in town hall meetings across America, “We the People” have voiced their disapproval of Obamacare and government run healthcare. The President has no one to blame but himself if either no one understand the 1500 pages of nonsense or others have been allowed to interpret what is in this boondoggle of a bill. After all, it was President Obama who wanted Congress to vote and pass this bill back before August break before anyone, including him, had read it.
Views of the health care plan proposed by President Obama and congressional Democrats remain largely unchanged since late July. A Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey conducted Tuesday and Wednesday nights finds that 44% favor the plan while 53% are opposed. These numbers are little different than those in late August.
What has captured the outrage of many as well is the consistent cover provided by the media in support of Obamacare and their insistence on disregarding the facts. NewsBusters references a recent interview where ABC’s Jim Moran acts more as the WH propaganda minister repeating talking points than he does actually citing poll information. Moran said, “… will deliver what polls show Americans want- security and stability in health care …”. You Lie!
Repeating White House talking points, Moran parroted, “The plan itself, the President claimed, will deliver what polls show Americans want- security and stability in health care, the end of those nightmares [extreme difficulties dealing with insurance companies].” Of course, the anchor could have cited polls, such as Rasmussen, that now show 53 percent of Americans oppose Obama’s proposal for government-run health care.
UPDATE I: From PowerLine … A Bounce, but Questions whether big enough.
