In U.S., Majority Now Against Gov't Healthcare Guarantee...Huh?
Gallup Politics ^ | 11/28/12 | Jeffrey Jones

Posted on 11/28/2012 8:01:41 AM PST by AngelesCrestHighway

PRINCETON, NJ -- For the first time in Gallup trends since 2000, a majority of Americans say it is not the federal government's responsibility to make sure all Americans have healthcare coverage. Prior to 2009, a majority always felt the government should ensure healthcare coverage for all, though Americans' views have become more divided in recent years. The current results are based on Gallup's annual Health and Healthcare poll, conducted Nov. 15-18 this year. The shift away from the view that the government should ensure healthcare coverage for all began shortly after President Barack Obama's election and has continued the past several years during the discussions and ultimate passage of the Affordable Care Act in March 2010. Americans are divided on that legislation today -- 48% approve and 45% disapprove -- as they have been over the last several years.

And think, the majority of Americans including me don’t know what Obamacare is in its entirety and don’t know how much it will cost us. Boy oh boy wait til we start finding out that stuff.

This post-election “whoops-what-have-we-done” crap seems to happen every damned time. Once again, Americans did the standard “ready-fire-aim” approach in the voting booth.

Well, America... too friggin’ late.

Remember, we had to pass it to find out what was in it....

THAT’S one for the history books, for sure!

I see it this way

Assume that as a form of economic stimulus, the Gov’t planned to fly over my city in a helicopter, and dump out $100 bills. Its stupid, inefficient, and wasteful.

But, I feel I have zero control of what the Government does, despite having voted. If the Government is going to do it anyway, then I will very likely step outside on that day and try to pick up some of the free money.

Why is why most of us silly extremists who don't know anything about politics were fighting like tooth and nail to try to block the grandfather of Obamacare from getting the nomination...

“Majority votes for Obama”
“Majority now against gov’t healthcare guarantee”

Both are true. How can this be?

Because the voters don’t understand these are contradictory statements. They just liked Obama better than that other guy.

"Stop with the polls that show how much Americans hate Obamacare!!!...They re-elected the A-hole!"

I doubt it. Most likely when you subtract Dem cheating, Romney wins. This poll supports that theory, too.

That is exactly my thought, too. And the polls against government healthcare are and will continue to firm up as more and more people realize how obamacare is going to hurt them and that it was forced on them by election fraud.

It will also reach a tipping point where the majority of Americans cannot be suppressed any longer. Even if Obama was re-elected he is wrong! They filched the election thinking that’s all they needed to do. Not so grasshoppa! The majority of us are way out in front of this crap being fed us by radicals in the government and media. We all know what the hell they are doing. I don’t know what the final straw will be but when the chit hits the fan watch out! No one on the right has changed their minds about Obama just because he was re-elected and probably by fraud. He’s still the same rat bastard leftist to me. When will the tipping point come and what will provoke it? Who knows?

If all those Americans lose their unemployment on Jan 1st...that could be a start but I don’t think Obango is going to care anymore what most Americans think about him.

It’s quite possible Gallup just repeated the poll sampling error they made before the election: they only counted the votes of those with enough common sense to pick up the phone and answer the question that was asked.

I think you hit the mark with that comment.

No one can convince me he actually won the election.

I don’t believe they intended for him to be reelected until they needed him to be reelected to cover up for the attack in Libya.

Nobody would create the mess that he created with the economy, foreign policy, arming up terrorist, and everything else he’s touched if they thought they would have to clean it up.

Boy oh boy wait til we start finding out that stuff.

The RightField household is being affected now.

My premium just went from $778 per month to $1028 per month (I am 63 yrs old, have been insured continuously for 40+ years, but have a "pre-existing condition" yet have only routine, minimal medical claims in the past 20 years.)

Mr. RightField (who has a Medicare Advantage policy) got a notice on Oct 25 that his insurance company's contract will be cancelled as of Nov 26 for most hospitals and labs that his doctor goes to. They gave us basically 30 days notice. So we just hope he doesn't require hospitalization before Jan 1 when his new insurance coverage kicks in.

We definitely feel our life expectancy just went way down with the passage of Obamacare.

...didn’t exit polls have voters liking Obamacare by 60%?

They re-elected the A-hole!

Not necessarily. I think massive voter fraud elected him. Starting with Florida, where a buffoon like Grayson gets put back in and West gets dumped. I know we live in Bizarro World now, but c'mon.
