51% % to 49%

That’s amazingly even for a poll taken by a Democrat news channel.

I like the built-in bias where they split the against vote into 2 separate categories so the one for the plan looks like the big winner.

But what else would you expect from that commie sellout outfit?

UGH! 51% pass it now?!

I can’t believe anyone would want this stinker of a bill!

Then again, perhaps everybody is just getting sick of the guillotine hanging overhead.

I am.

Correct. "Starting over" will just be a re-write of this POS.

The six or seven initatives such as elimiating fraud through law enforcement (novel idea, huh?), and tort reform, shopping for insurance across state lines, etc; should be separate initiatives.

There should be zero government involvement.

My guess would be since this is CNN, the DROP IT vote is tied to the PASS IT counter and the PASS IT is tied to the DROP IT counter.

With 40,000 votes, it takes quite a few votes to move the percentages.

Which is why I usually feel pretty hopeless about this nation. If a majority of dumbazzes couldn’t see Hussein for what he is in the first place when it was clear as crystal, why will they be any smarter the next time some oily schmoozer comes along promising them free goodies for life if they’ll just let him take care of everything? This has shown more clearly than anyone could’ve ever foreseen just how the antichrist will rise to power.

Code Red” - House Target List on Health Care

The National Republican Congressional Committee has published a target list on health care. In addition to continuing to contact the five Tennessee Democrat Congressmen, you can go http://www.votervoice.net/link/clickthrough/ext/94697.aspx to contact some of these targets. Much of the talk following Obama’s announcement has focused on how to defeat this second bill through reconciliation, but that is misleading because the first step to defeating Obamacare is not by concentrating on defeating the “fixer” bill but by defeating the Senate bill in the House when it goes to the floor for an up-or-down vote on Thursday, March 18th.

At the first number below you must wait through a tape recording urging you to tell your Rep or Senator to vote “yes” for the health care bill. Just hang on and when the recording is over, you will get the Capitol operator. Just ask for your Rep or Senator’s office. Then you will either talk to an aid or have the chance to leave a message for him/her to vote NO on the health care bill.

When you use the second number and the Capitol operator comes on, just ask for your Rep or Senator’s office. Every time I use this number I get the Rep or Senator’s answer machine, so it may be set up that way all the time...to go to their answer machine. Either way you can leave a message to vote NO on the health care bill!

Thanks to DaMav and AmericaUnite for the pings! Poll is doing better, if the "drop it" and start over" votes are combined.

FREEP THIS POLL ***PING!*** FRmail me if you want to be added or removed from the Fearless Poll-Freeping Freepers Ping list. And be sure to ping me to any polls that need Freepin', if I miss them. (looks like a medium volume list) (gordongekko909, founder of the pinglist, stays on the list until his ghost signs up for the list)
