deception


In a recent Gallup Poll 40 percent of respondents called themselves conservatives and only 21 percent called themselves liberals. The rest are somewhere in between. But what we are getting with this attempt to pass healthcare, as with virtually everything else that comes out of congress, is strictly liberal policy. It caters to merely one fifth of the population. However you slice it, a large majority of Americans are being ill served by the current Federal Government.

Yet we're told that "the people" really want PelosiCare according to some tortured polling that the Democrats claim to be looking at. If that is the case, if everyone is in love with ObamaCare, then why cannot they wait until next year to enact the legislation? After all, no matter what, it's not designed to kick in until after the 2012 elections. So why the rush if it's such a great idea?

They are rushing because they know that what they are trying to do is deeply unpopular. So they have to cram it through one way or the other with the hope that it's forgotten about before the 2010 mid term elections.

Again, if this legislation is so popular why not have the discussion during the 2010 elections. If it's a winning issue politically it would make sense to get it right and drag out the discussion. But they know that's far from the truth so they rush and hold sessions at midnight on a Saturday in order to try and cram this stuff through before anyone gets a chance to object.

Just tell the truth Democrats. Would it kill you to, once in a blue moon, to be straight with the American people?

If this is as important of an issue that the Democrats claim it is, you'd think that they might consider abandoning the deception and give up this painfully obvious attempt to hoodwink the American people.

Any links that back up your claim of unpopularity?

You have to be dumb as a rock and dead to the world not to know that Obama/PelosiCare is unpopular. But that's what you get when you rely on TPM, Kos, HuffPo and MSNBC for your information.

The point here is that the Democrats DON'T CARE. This is their opportunity to pass/cram a bunch of their wish list items through and they are going to do it, regardless of the cost.

Once done they'll become the permanent Majority and the United States will be a satellite extension of the European Union.

Meanwhile, Obama bowed to the Japanese emperor yesterday. What happened to shaking hands like a man?

Isn't hope and change awesome?

Not my post. Talk to Jaz. But I think the graph included nicely illustrates the point he's making. Hint: it's from Gallup.

Or, maybe your lazy ass could pick up the phone and call your 'research director.'

If Chris thinks things are just peachy for Obamacare then whatever...good luck with that.

It amuses me that The Obamatrons try and trick themselves into thinking everything is going just swimmingly for Obamacare. By all means keep forging ahead with the blinders on. I see no need to upset that particular applecart.

There's plenty of polling data around, but really why even ask the question until the Dems have sorted out what we're even talking about? People don't even know what actual legislation they're answering questions about.

We shall see how popular the final bill that emerges is, if that ever happens.
