Mandate Against Obamacare: Health Plan Hits New Low as only 41% Approve … A Resounding 56% Disapprove


If Obama claimed a Presidential mandate after he beat John Mc Cain in the 2008 Presidential Obama_care3election 53% to 46% … what does Obama call it when his Obamcare plan is opposed by the American voters 56 to 41%?

After all the Obama speeches to the American people and to joint sessions of Congress, the verdict is in and “We the People” in a mandate categorically disapprove of Obamacare 56% to 41%. The Obama healthcare blitz accomplished nothing. In fact, the poll numbers are worse today than prior to Obama Sunday Talk show-palooza.

41% represents the lowest approval rating yet for Obamacare and it is sinking. It is obvious to all that Obama cannot sell this government takeover of healthcare to the people as he fails to come up with specifics and details. If he did, even less people would support the plan.

Just 41% of voters nationwide now favor the health care reform proposed by President Obama and congressional Democrats. That’s down two points from a week ago and the lowest level of support yet measured.

How much trouble is Obamacare in? Check out some of the numbers behind the numbers. If a Democrat Congress ever tried to push this bill through without Republican support it would be the end of Democrat control in the House and Senate. It would also make The One, a one and done term President.

  • Senior citizens: just 33% of seniors favor the plan while 59% are opposed. The intensity gap among seniors is significant. Only 16% of the over-65 crowd Strongly Favors the legislation while 46% are Strongly Opposed.
  • A slight plurality of voters now express doubt that the legislation will become law this year. 46% say passage is likely while 47% say it is not. 68% of Democrats say the plan is at least somewhat likely to become law. 61% of Republicans disagree. Among those not affiliated with either major party, 34% say passage is at least somewhat likely while 58% say it is not.

 Maybe the most important number from the most important demographic (The Independents) is as follows:

  • Currently 75% of Democrats favor the plan.
  • 79% of Republicans are opposed
  • 72% of the unaffiliated oppose the plan as well

      More government control is not the answer. It is not surprising to me one bit that people from both parties think Obamacare SUCKS IT hard.

      Here is more government control in action! Look at some of the great results it is currently producing.

      Let’s book grandma, that dirty lil b. had it coming, didn’t she?

      By Lisa Trigg
      The Tribune-Star

      CLINTON — When Sally Harpold bought cold medicine for her family back in March, she never dreamed that four months later she would end up in handcuffs.

      Now, Harpold is trying to clear her name of criminal charges, and she is speaking out in hopes that a law will change so others won’t endure the same embarrassment she still is facing.

      “This is a very traumatic experience,” Harpold said.

      Harpold is a grandmother of triplets who bought one box of Zyrtec-D cold medicine for her husband at a Rockville pharmacy. Less than seven days later, she bought a box of Mucinex-D cold medicine for her adult daughter at a Clinton pharmacy, thereby purchasing 3.6 grams total of pseudoephedrine in a week’s time.

      Those two purchases put her in violation of Indiana law 35-48-4-14.7, which restricts the sale of ephedrine and pseudoephedrine, or PSE, products to no more than 3.0 grams within any seven-day period.

      When the police came knocking at the door of Harpold’s Parke County residence on July 30, she was arrested on a Vermillion County warrant for a class-C misdemeanor, which carries a sentence of up to 60 days in jail and up to a $500 fine. But through a deferral program offered by Vermillion County Prosecutor Nina Alexander, the charge could be wiped from Harpold’s record by mid-September. (snip)

      It is Unconstitutional for the Government to be
      meddling in Health Care at all. Granted that even
      tho Medicare and Medicaid border on the edge
      of legality, they both are horribly bankrupt and
      firmly drowning. Hobnail boots crunching on the
      3rd, 4th, 5th, 9th, and 10th Amendments makes
      a sound we should never hear! The Constitution
      and the Bill of Rights are our compass in our
      Free Society. Without God (not religion per se)
      and our Laws (derived from God rather than a
      political goon) we will suffer a transfer of our
      lives to the Executive Branch of our Government.

      Once that transfer ‘goes viral’, it is so very hard
      to reclaim Freedom.

      obama is nothing more than a blowhard who likes to hear himself read speeches and blame others for the problems he created.

      I think Obama was a black person who became president. If he had been of the character and leadership to have been a ‘person’ who became president…his ideas would have been more generous and seen as such. It is impossible to live/associate in hate and smirk of others, without ordinary, albeit cute — failure.

      i find it hard to believe that there are people that actually want this kind of health reform. evidently they haven’t read any of the bill to see all the loopholes the government has in it.
      to send people to jail for not purchasing this insurance is un American.
      obama’s policies are getting more absurd daily. this bill won’t pass.

      It is time that the governors of the states put their foot down on this illegal bill by stating that they will not allow it in their state.
      When the first version of this bill was posted on the internet, I read the first two hundred pages. The more I read the madder I became. This is not a Health Care bill alone. It is all about government control.
      If the Democrats proceed to try and get this bill passed by parlimentry tricks, the people should vote out office every one of them.

      The Democrats are publicly standing with “Egg on their faces” and won’t admit it.

    8. Democrat Rep Alan Grayson (D-Fla.) Says “If you get Sick, America, the Republican Healthcare plan is this: Die quickly.” and Uses Holocaust Comparison | Scared Monkeys on September 30th, 2009 11:03 pm

      [...] Democrats are in desperation and panic mode as they role out the old tired play book that Republicans want to kill people. Oh, and let’s not forget an obligatory Holocaust comparison. Democrats have lost complete control of the Obamacare message and Obamacare in general. Is it any wonder why the American people are against Obamacare? [...]
