Amazing as it might seem, this elevator may not yet have reached the basement.
Fifty-three percent of Americans say they disapprove of the new reforms, including 39 percent who say they disapprove strongly. In the days before the bill passed the House, 37 percent said they approved and 48 percent disapproved.
Republicans and independents remain opposed to the reforms, and support has dropped some among Democrats. Now 52 percent of Democrats approve of the new reforms, a drop from 60 percent just before the bill was passed by Congress
Even though the president and Democratic leaders have repeatedly pointed out that the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office called the reform package a deficit-reducer, six in 10 Americans still think the new health care reforms will increase the budget deficit. Just 13 percent think the reforms will decrease the deficit and another 15 percent expect no effect.

The fan is turned on but the S**T hasn’t hit it yet.
Americans, including some Democrats, have an inherent distrust of the govt. It gives me hope. There’s not much else to cling to (bitter clinger that I am) but it’s something.
As long as the “messiah” is out there with his Obamanoids and union thugs rubbing our faces it it everyday, it’s going to continue to erode. This “You’re Gonna Love ObamaCare” World Tour 2010 wasn’t a very bright idea. But what can you expect from a bunch of teenbopping hip hoppers?
LOL, well give people some time, but hopefully everyone will see how devastating Obamacare will be.
That’s true. I also find in talking with “some Democrat friends” that they tend to react ideologically - i.e. spout the party line, but when pressed, can’t explain why. In fact, if you ask the right questions, they’ll often say things that are opposed to Democrat policy. They always have to think about how the pieces of BS fit together so they don’t contradict themselves.
When you believe in freedom and conservative principles, we just don’t have that problem.
People have to be complete and total idiots to believe that this won’t break the country. We need health care reform but this Bill is the dumbest thing our Congress has ever done. Where’s the money going to come from if they didn’t tax the people to death?
The 8 percent drop in Dem support represents the number of people who have tried to walk into hospitals and obtain free procedures. Reality is setting in. ;)
NO!!! Who Knew!!
I would be surprised if it wasn't.
Rubbing the noses of a proud people in the fact that you’re not only taking away their freedom bit-by-bit, but also picking their pockets to facilitate the clampdown... that is an especially dangerous act. That sort of behavior may not have caused two world wars, but it certainly greased the skids.
When the manure finally hits the mixmaster, I hope it covers all the Congress RATS with ode de horse$hit!
Those unintended consequences lurk *everywhere*. Heh.
Many of the supporters in the general public had a lot of misconceptions about what is in the bill and what it actually means.
The Democrats are going to learn that you can prevent a lot of disillusionment among your supporters if you’re upfront about what you’re proposing. Particularly something that hits people as personally as health care.
Unfortunately for Obama (and fortunately for us) you’re right. :)
Given the way Castro and other commies were celebrating, I am sure many were deluded into believing that a single payer medicare for all scheme had passed.
