Democrats Tongue Tied as they Try to Justify $300 Million Pay Off to Sen. Landrieu as 56% of Americans Oppose Obamacare
As the US House of Representatives and now the US Senate ram Obamacare down the throats of Americans by partisan votes, 56% now oppose health care proposed by Obama and Congressional Democrats. You read that correctly, 56% now oppose Obamacare and the government take over of health care while only 38% approve. This represents the largest gap of those in favor as compared to those opposed since Rasmussen has begun polling on the issue.
Only 16% now believe passage of the plan will lead to lower health care costs. Nearly four times as many (60%) believe the plan will increase health care costs. Most (54%) also believe passage of the plan will hurt the quality of care.
As has been the case for months, Democrats favor the plan while Republicans and voters not affiliated with either major party are opposed. The latest numbers show support from 73% of those in the president’s party. The plan is opposed by 83% of Republicans and 70% of unaffiliated voters.
In essence, Obamacare is only backed by Democrats, as 83% of Republicans and an astounding 70% of Independents want nothing to do with this healthcare bill. Yet, Democrats continue to force this upon We the People.
The more that Barack Obama and Democrats force health care down the throats of Americans, the more Americans become informed of what this bill states, the more Americans want nothing to do with it. However, as “We the People” say no to Obamacare … Democrats like Harry Reid pay off Senators for their vote. However, when it comes to Democrats defending the buying of votes and the supposed different way of doing business in Washington that Barack Obama promised … Democratic Senators Sherrod Brown and Jeanne Shaheen were tongue tied and speechless. They actually must have been surprised than CNN’s John King dare ask such a question.
Is this bill important enough to buy votes?
No body likes these kind of deals, yet Democrats did it any how.
“The promise of the Obama campaign is to change the way Washington works,” CNN’s John King asks Sen. Sherrod Brown. King argues that this process is “Washington as usual, is it not?” Brown and Sen. Jeanne Shaheen were tongue-tied as to how to answer the question at first.
