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.

Hat Tip: Gateway Pundit
As the Gateway Pundit stated, Senators Brown and Shaheen were dumbfounded at the question and literally had no idea how to answer a question that Harry’s Reids business as usual of paying off a Senator and bribing them for their vote was the right way to do the work of the American people.
“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.
With 70% of Independents against Obamacare, the crowned jewel of Barack Obama, can you only imagine how races will play out in 2010 and 2012 not only for Blue Dog Democrats, but in swing states and once thought of marginally strong Democrat districts? New Jersey was once thought to be dark blue and look what happened to Democrat Governor Corzine.

      Landrieu is just high price porker. Obama pimped her out. She should be sanctioned from the Senate.

      Why can’t legal minds think of charges to be filed on some of these corruptions…if not now, for after she gets out of office. Providing Obama does not pardon all evil politicians ahead of time.

      An ordinary bad cop making near minimum wage can find a trumped up charge to stop a car, treaspass on private property, or find excuse to chase someone not running. Mind you, not all cops are bad. But why is it the owners of this country can see congress doing criminal acts, and not be able to make charges.

      The current congress seems clearly, often, and inintentioned an enemy — not an employee, of the American public and its document.

      To really understand who is behind President Obamas agenda you need to take a close look at the Apollo Alliance. The Apollo Alliance was behind the American Recovery and Reinvestment act (see below). They also are involved in crafting Cap and Trade, Health Care Reform, the entire Green Agenda and much more. In the Reports section they seek to “… help the progressive community unite uncommon allies behind an agenda for energy independence, good jobs, and national security.” Haven’t the Progressives done enough???
      To better understand their goals, you also need to look at their Endorsers, and their Financial Backers. You will notice the large amount of Union Backers as well as ACORN and the SEIU.
      Amongst their Goals
      1) Provide direct federal funding for clean energy manufacturers to retool their facilities and retrain their workers to develop, produce, and commercialize clean energy technologies.
      2) Attach standards to funding: condition federal support to manufacturers on their ability to meet labor and domestic content standards.
      3) Increase funding for the Manufacturing Extension Partnership, both to expand its role in strengthening the clean energy supply chain and to establish partnerships with regional/local development and manufacturing support organizations.
      4) Increase funding for the Green Jobs Act and direct funds administered under the law toward workforce and skill standards development for the clean energy manufacturing industries.
      5) Create a Presidential Task Force on Clean Energy Manufacturing to bring together a range of federal agencies to make the manufacturing of clean energy
      Just a few minutes on their website is enough to scare anybody, once you realize how much power this group has. It is time to take back our country.
      In 2009, the Apollo Alliance marked these achievements:
      American Recovery and Reinvestment Act
      In February 2009 Congress approved and President Barack Obama signed the breakthrough clean energy and green-collar jobs provisions of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. The $787 billion stimulus legislation that President Obama signed in a Denver museum partially powered by a rooftop solar array contains $86 billion in clean energy and green-collar job programs, plus $27.5 billion in road and highway construction funds, much of which state transportation departments will use to repair infrastructure and not on building new highways. As Apollo noted since the package was introduced on January 15, the provisions that formed a big part of the foundation of the stimulus was funding to build new transit and high speed rail lines, weatherize homes, develop next generation batteries for clean vehicles, scale up wind and solar power, build a modern electric grid, and train a new generation of green-collar workers. In every way, the clean energy provisions of the stimulus bill are a surpassing achievement. The magnitude of the investment and the bill’s comprehensive sweep reflect the unleashing of a pent-up demand for a new way to power and employ America — $17.7 billion for rail development, $34 billion for energy efficiency, $7.9 billion for renewable energy, $10.9 billion for a smart electric grid, $3.3 billion for next generation batteries and alternative fuel vehicles, $4.5 billion for energy research. The clean energy focus of the stimulus was inspired by the Apollo Alliance’s vision, and the specific content of many of the bill’s provisions was influenced by policy proposals that the Apollo Alliance made last year in The New Apollo Program and the Apollo Economic Recovery Act. “The recovery bill represents the focused work of labor, business, environmental and social justice organizations who developed a clear strategy about where the nation needed to go, and worked together to achieve it,” said Phil Angelides, former California treasurer and chairman of the Apollo Alliance. As Senator Harry Reid, the Senate Majority Leader, noted in a statement. “We’ve talked about moving forward on these ideas for decades. The Apollo Alliance has been an important factor in helping us develop and execute a strategy that makes great progress on these goals and in motivating the public to support them.”
