REPEAL OBAMACARE, SAY MOST AMERICANS
Posted by Andrew Roman on May 24, 2010
Liberals have no interest in what Americans really care about. Rather, they are interested in telling Americans what they should – nay, will – care about. The needs of their constituencies are irrelevant to them, because, for the most part, they don’t believe the people they are charged to represent really know what they need. It’s because buried deep within the soul of the modern-day American liberal, stuck to their DNA like Nutella to a butter knife, is that inherent tendency toward totalitarianism. Whether it’s someone in the thick of the liberal stew like New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman, who says he actually fantasizes about what it would be like in America if we were like China for just one day, to entertainment icon Woody Allen, who says that a few years of an Obama dictatorship would be good for this country, they are liberals, and they know best.
Just ask one.
Ever since Arizona passed its illegal immigration law, a majority of Americans have been in favor of it. In fact, in some polls, support for the law has actually increased. Meanwhile, Obamacrats continue to speak out against it – including those who haven’t yet read it – demonstrating how out-of-touch with the country they really are.
The same can be said for Obamacare.
According to a new Rasmussen poll, a convincing six in ten Americans believe that Obamacare should be flat out repealed.
That’s right … repealed.
That’s the highest level ever.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 63% of U.S. voters now favor repeal of the plan passed by congressional Democrats and signed into law by President Obama in March.
Prior to today, weekly polling had shown support for repeal ranging from 54% to 58%.
Currently, just 32% oppose repeal.
The new findings include 46% who Strongly Favor repeal of the health care bill and 25% who Strongly Oppose it.
While opposition to the bill has remained as consistent since its passage as it was beforehand, this marks the first time that support for repeal has climbed into the 60s. It will be interesting to see whether this marks a brief bounce or indicates a trend of growing opposition.
Thirty-three percent (33%) of voters now believe the health care plan will be good for the country, down six points from a week ago and the lowest level of confidence in the plan to date. Fifty-five percent (55%) say it will be bad for the nation. Only three percent (3%) think it will have no impact.
This can be filed under “Why Elections Matter.”
We are a little over five months away from, arguably, the most critical non-Presidential election in America’s history. Key components of ObamaCare really don’t start to kick in until 2014. For a repeal to actually happen, Republicans must come away winners in November and then take back the White House from the jaws of destruction in 2012.
One step at a time.
But it isn’t that one-dimensional.
Republicans cannot just run on repealing ObamaCare. They must put together sensible reforms as part of a repeal package.
That’s how a roadmap to repeal could work … “on paper.”
Unfortunately, the fear is that once the “benefits” start flowing, only the most steadfast conservatives will not cave.
Supreme Court, anyone?
