Who really has the public's support on health care? - World Public Opinion


Feb. 26-28 Ipsos/McClatchy poll first found that 41 percent said they favored the health care plan under consideration, while 47 percent were opposed. A follow-on question, though, found that many of those opposed to it (17 percent of the whole sample) did so because it did not go far enough. Only 25 percent aligned with the Republican position by complaining that it goes too far.

Lol.
I'd say from the number of people lining up to support health reform in this thread that you're the fringe element, splatter.

From the article:

But this does not mean that the public is giving Mr. Obama the big "go ahead." It really bothers Americans that the bill is not more bipartisan. A March 3-8 Associated Press poll found 61 percent saying bipartisan support is very important. Sixty-eight percent said the president should keep trying to make a deal with the Republicans. Americans also like some of the Republican proposals. Kaiser found 79 percent saying that tort reform is important.

The poll was taken prior to the shit about 50+1 etc.

You can spin it anyway you want. The country didn't want this plan and they are pissed about the corrupt and criminal way it was pushed through against our will. If you think you're seeing seething anger and threats now, wait until the amnesty push starts up again in the next few weeks.

The fact is that nobody has posted that they support health care reform in your thread meant to illustrate that those who oppose it are "fringe".

This is fucking classic.

I see the truth doesn't not matter to people like you. Why don't you use a little more creditable source? Because the truth and reality aren't part of your existence.

I just started a thread where white men, without Obama would have never been elected, are running away from the democratic party. We are sick of these people in DC not listening to our voice which by a clear majority have said they disagree and dont want this socialist bill passed and the democrats will pay for it come Nov.

Indeed. Wait until the poll results in a couple of weeks time. It's going to look even worse for ObamaCare.

Truthmattersnot doesn't grok the fact that this isn't really Health Care Reform - it is Big Government Expansion.

I have even spoken with a couple of people that voted Obama that are saying they once supported Obamacare but after reading and listening to the truth about it and not the lies the liberals are spewing about lowering the deficit and creating jobs, they are totally against it and are wondering why their democratic leaders are not listening to them also.

I would have prefered that it went farther in describing with honesty the method of payment for medical services by individuals which is obscure at best in most descriptions. Many of the poor and uneducated believe that this means free medical care. It does not.

An honest description of the amount of tax increases would have been a good step farther.

Tort Reform would have been a good step farther.

A comprehensive definition of exactly what the post reform Health Care insurance policy would look like would have been a good step farther.

Mandating true competition for insurance sales so they act and look like auto insurance would be good. Another shortfall in the legislation.

This bill is undefined, unexplained, unplanned, unconstitutional and undeniably partisan. It will be interesting to see if this is still a point of rancor in November. The October Surprise this year might be that the voting population still remembers a swindle that occurred before the start of the 24 news cycle.

Then again, it might not. A fight between the Tea Parties and Acorn.

The local news (KTVU Channel 2) had a segment showing three Reps for the Bay Area, including Lynn Woolsey, being greeted at SFO by ObamaCare supporters.

Very telling: the camera kept a very tight angle so that the six supporters filled up the screen. Each one was holding a printed sign from Organizing for America.

Contrast that with the thousands who will show up at April 15th Tea Party Protests. Mr. Boe and I will be at the Union Square one with our own Hand Made Signs.

My parents attended a tea party and are very concerned about their GRANDCHILDREN'S future. It just disgusts me how these honest Americans can be called "extremist" or "fringe". My folks aren't worried for themselves. They care about the future. That's the real difference between libs and normal people in my opinion. Libs only care about immediate gratification and what's in it for them. Selfish and troubling.

This must be what has you worried.:lol::lol::lol: November is coming, only a short 7 months away. :lol::lol::lol: People are going to like it even LESS when they lose their jobs over it. AT+ T costs this year alone, 1 billion- Verizon sending out letters to their employees that their health care premiums are going UP. Catapillar, John Deare, the list goes on, the IT industry is looking at it. Physicians sending out letters to their patients telling them they will not see any more medicare and medicaid patients, many telling their patients that they are quitting the profession. This PIG is just starting to kick in and those who voted for it, against the will of their constituents will pay a very heavy price for it come November.:clap2:

Poll: Most Want GOP to Keep Fighting on Health Bill - Political Hotsheet - CBS News

Of Course, Obama does have ONE supporter:lol::lol::lol: Fidel Castro- the communist dictator of Cuba. :lol::lol::lol::lol:

Cuban leader applauds US health-care reform bill - Yahoo! Finance

HAVANA (AP) -- It perhaps was not the endorsement President Barack Obama and the Democrats in Congress were looking for.

Cuban revolutionary leader Fidel Castro on Thursday declared passage of American health care reform "a miracle" and a major victory for Obama's presidency, but couldn't help chide the United States for taking so long to enact what communist Cuba achieved decades ago.

"We consider health reform to have been an important battle and a success of his (Obama's) government," Castro wrote in an essay published in state media, adding that it would strengthen the president's hand against lobbyists and "mercenaries."

But the Cuban leader also used the lengthy piece to criticize the American president for his lack of leadership on climate change and immigration reform, and for his decision to send more troops to Afghanistan, among many other things.

And he said it was remarkable that the most powerful country on earth took more than two centuries from its founding to approve something as basic as health benefits for all.

"It is really incredible that 234 years after the Declaration of Independence ... the government of that country has approved medical attention for the majority of its citizens, something that Cuba was able to do half a century ago," Castro wrote.

The longtime Cuban leader -- who ceded power to his brother Raul in 2008 -- has continued to pronounce his thoughts on world issues though frequent essays, titled "Reflections," which are published in state newspapers.

Cuba provides free health care and education to all its citizens, and heavily subsidizes food, housing, utilities and transportation, policies that have earned it global praise. The government has warned that some of those benefits are no longer sustainable given Cuba's ever-struggling economy, though it has so far not made major changes.


That's us in a few years-
