Well, since most Americans didn't approve of it prior to passage, I am not terribly surprised.

This is probably taken out of context, but still...

I am super excited to watch Republicans run on repealing the bill. "Yes, Virginia, I'm in favour of cutting children off from health care when they get sick, and 39% rate hikes every year." Good luck with that platform. :lol:

Perhaps more interesting is the fact that the Republicans actually cannot possibly repeal it. They'd need 67 votes in the Senate to overcome Obama's veto, and even if they win every race this year - unlikely, to say the least - they'd only have 59. So this is just hollow politicking anyway.

But I do encourage it! It's going to be a fun election.

That was so cool. I clicked on your link to the article in the hopes of reading the question as it was presented or getting more detail than you posted. There wasn't muich detail. In the article was one link to a form I could fill out in order to request a rate quote from UNH.

You are right.

That didn't take long.

Chris, what was the actual wording of the question that was asked in the poll?  I can't find it through any of the links.

Poll questions links.

If that doesn't work just go to the rasmussenreports website and there's a link on the front page.

Rasmussen reports have been accused of generally having a republican bias with their results so this needs to be taken with a grain of salt.  I couldn't find anything that said what the sample size was either.

actually it says right at the top sample size was "1000 potential voters" -doesn't say from where though... 1000 red state voters are prob going to have different answers than coastal or big metropolitan voters.

But what if they decided to come up with their own bill to modify the existing bill?

They can make themselves out as heroes if they put forth their own health care plan.

If Obama vetoes it, he then makes himself look like the bad guy.

For those of you that couldn't find the questions...


National Survey of 1,000 Likely Voters
Conducted March 23-24, 2010

By Rasmussen Reports


1* Will the health care plan passed by Congress and signed into law by President Obama be good for the country or bad for the country?

 

41% Good
49% Bad
3% No impact
7% Not sure

 

2* A proposal has been made to repeal the health care bill and stop it from going into effect. Do you strongly favor, somewhat favor, somewhat oppose or strongly oppose a proposal to repeal the health care bill?

 

46% Strongly favor
9% Somewhat favor
7% Somewhat oppose
35% Strongly oppose
4% Not sure

 

3* In this November’s congressional election, suppose you have a choice between one candidate who wants to repeal the health care plan and another candidate who opposes repeal. Which candidate would you support – the one who wants to repeal the plan or the one who opposes repeal?

 

52% One who wants to repeal the plan

41% One who opposes repeal

7% Not sure

 

4* Is the health care reform legislation passed by Congress and signed into law by President Obama likely to increase the deficit, reduce the deficit or have no impact on the deficit?

 

60% Increase
19% Reduce
12% No impact
9% Not sure

 

5* Regardless of the impact on the nation at large, what type of impact will the health care plan have on you personally. Will the health care plan be good for you personally, bad for you personally, or will it have no impact on you personally?

 

26% Good
43% Bad
25% No impact
6% Not sure

NOTE: Margin of Sampling Error, +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence

 

I think the most telling answer is the one for how it effects the deficit.

How could they? The people that voted for it don't even know what's in it.

I wonder if the average American knows what the word "repeal" means. Anyway, Gallup's poll had a much different result:

60% thought that it would increase the deficit. 

That means they are concerned about the cost. That fact that it has a larger response. may mean that it's their biggest worry.

On the subject of unsustainable entitlement programs, the NYTimes.com reported on 3/24 that the Social Security payouts are to exceed Social Security tax revenues this year (2010)!

The excessive debt fire was burning wildly before the new healthcare reform was passed, now we just sprayed gasoline on the flames.
