Lipsticking the Obamacare pig … in the end a pig is just a pig and a government take over of healthcare is one in the same as well.
Contrary to the LEFT’s spin … Barack Obama’s speech to a joint session of Congress last week was not a game changer. It was a predictable knee jerk bounce in the polls that would come back and settle exactly where it began. Once again as Americans have realized you can’t lipstick a pig, nor can you make a disastrous healthcare plan smell like a rose, support for Obamacare is back to 52% against and 45% approval.
Following President Obama’s speech to Congress last week, support for his health care reform plan increased steadily to a peak of 51% yesterday. However, the bounce appears to be over. The latest daily tracking shows that support has fallen all the way back to pre-speech levels.
This is the reason why you don’t go by daily snap shots of polls, you follow the trend. According to the Rasmussen poll, 23% strongly favor the plan while 41% are strongly opposed. What was the Rasmussen poll on Obamacare just prior to the President’s speech, 53% opposed and 45% approve.
