Yet its getting pushed through...
Got a link for that number?
Getting through? You mean they can discuss in Senate? No promise of it getting through. If it does, still has to be reconciled with House bill.

Poll: U.S. deeply divided on healthcare - UPI.com
WASHINGTON, Nov. 17 (UPI) -- U.S. residents are deeply divided over efforts in Congress to reform the country's healthcare system, a poll indicated Tuesday.
A Washington Post-ABC News poll showed Americans have deep misgivings about the proposals, predicting higher costs, but they also don't agree with Republican efforts to kill the reform efforts, the Post reported.
The poll showed 48 percent of respondents support the proposed changes while 49 percent indicated they were opposed, the Post said.
There was continued support for key elements of the legislation, such as a requirement that employers provide health insurance to their workers and a proposal to establish a government-sponsored "public option" for those people without insurance.
Some 53 percent voiced support for a public option to compete with private insurers, with the support jumping to 72 percent when the option is limited to those who lack access to coverage through an employer or the Medicare or Medicaid systems.
What House bill? And what makes you think that they are going to bribe this thing all the way through. They've already talked Louisiana into selling out. 100 million is chump change to what they will be trying to buy votes for next month. Just you wait and see.
Nothing would make me happier than to see this thing die and die fast, but it's not going to.
Thanks for the link.
HR 3962 The Affordable Health Choices Act of 2009, deceptively named as it is neither affordable nor a choice.
Talk about spin. Registered voters are, on average, older and whiter than the overall population. That's going to favor the GOP position.
and who votes?
Registered voters, but that's not relevant. You could claim that using a registered voter screen would be more favorable to the Democrats that a likely voter screen (which is true), but to say it's the most favorable is BS.
