From Rasmussen Reports:
Just 38% of voters now favor the health care plan proposed by President Obama and congressional Democrats. That’s the lowest level of support measured for the plan in nearly two dozen tracking polls conducted since June.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 56% now oppose the plan.
Half the survey was conducted before the Senate voted late Saturday to begin debate on its version of the legislation. Support for the plan was slightly lower in the half of the survey conducted after the Senate vote.
Intensity remains stronger among those who oppose the push to change the nation’s health care system: 21% Strongly Favor the plan while 43% are Strongly Opposed.
Public support for socialized medicine has steadily eroded and has now hit its lowest point ever, dropping 9 points in just one week! Any intelligent observer would have to conclude that while the 2008 campaign generalities and platitudes sounded nice to some naive people, now that Americans have gotten a good look at the reality of such a program they have decided that it is not in their best interest.
Given that, and the fact that the congress is allegedly comprised of our “public servants”, one would expect the House and Senate to drop the matter. But they will not. Why? Because this is not about giving the people what they want. This does not even have anything to do with a concern for the health care needs of Americans.
This is about the power and control that comes with government dependency. Neal Boortz summed it up well today:
ObamaCare = Entitlement = Dependency = Control = Power
This is the biggest power grab in the history of the republic. It is time for us to do some heavy lifting. It is time for us to do our part to earn the right to share the label of American with people like Nathan Hale and Joseph Warren and Samuel Adams.
Let’s not let them down, my brothers and sisters. Now is the time for all good men and women to come to the aid of their country.
These statist bastards have no idea that they have truly awakened the sleeping giant. Let’s make our forefathers proud.
