Senate & House, Vote for Obamacare at Your Own Risk … 54% Favor Middle Class Tax Cuts Over Spending on Health Care
If it walks like a duck and talks like a duck, then it is socialized government controlled health care on its way to single payer health care system and a tax hike to pay for it.
The Democrats and Senator Baucus can spin the healthcare legislation anyway they want it, the American People do not want any part of it. “We the People” do not want new spending on a total overhaul of the healthcare system that will do more damage than good. “We the People” will not tolerate health care disguised as “a tax hike dressed in a lab coat”.
A new Rasmussen poll shows that 54% of American voters favor a middle class tax cuts over new spending on health care. What is interesting is this poll is identical to how the American people felt back in August, prior to Congress going on break. Nothing has changed. We the People reject the socialized healthcare spin.
But a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that most voters continue to favor middle class tax cuts over spending more money for health care reform.
Thirty-three percent (33%) of voters say new spending for health care reform is more important. But 54% rate middle class tax cuts as the priority over more health care spending. Thirteen percent (13%) aren’t sure.
These findings are identical to ones just before Congress’ August recess and prior to President Obama’s effort to jump start his health care reform initiative with a nationally televised speech to Congress.
Although such an amendment was defeated in a party line vote in the Senate committee, 59% of voters favor putting a provision in the health care plan that would prohibit any new taxes, fees or penalties on families who make less than $250,000 a year.
The Congress can vote on health care and defy the will of the people at their own peril. Do Democrats really want to follow Obama blinfdly on the healthcare vote? A President with sinking poll numbers and draw the wrath of the American voters come 2010?
Fifty-nine percent (59%) are opposed to paying more in taxes to provide universal health care, up five points since May.
Twelve percent (12%) aren’t sure.
Only 29% of voters are willing to pay higher taxes so all Americans can be provided with health insurance.
