Skip to comments.73% of Texas voters oppose new health care law.

In a recent survey conducted by the Texas Research Organization, 73 percent of respondents expressed opposition to the new law with the same percentage favoring repeal.

and the 27% that either don’t care either way, are unsure, or like it live in Austin and are recent imports from Los Angeles.
Deadbeats and illegals.
Or imports from Michigan and other northern dem hell-holes.We have alot of those lately. They spoiled their own nests with leftist policies and now think they are going to spoil ours too.
Only 73%? LOL. Just kidding. Good news though. Just hope it continues through November and spreads across the country.
We shall see how strong this is when it’s time to vote.
No state income tax.
why so low
“live in Austin and are recent imports from Los Angeles.”
Are they huddled together there, fighting against the evil hordes? :)
“Only 73%? LOL. Just kidding.”
LOL. That’s not HUGH and SERIES enough!
That is interesting.
I hope those people vote that way.
I do not believe this poll. I know few Texans who are not in favour of health care reform, including doctors. Especially the doctors with whom I have spoken.
That is not the case in San Antonio. Or Dallas.
And that includes quite a few Republicans who are in favour of the health care reform...surprisingly. Including some of the leaders of the Republican party here in Texas.
That’s because they don’t understand how good it will be for them!
Mine too. My husband and I are going to check out houses in July. We have friends in Spring and have been down a few times. I love Texas.
I spent the day last Monday in the emergency room at St Luke’s here in San Antonio. Every doctor I asked was in favour of health care reform.
Check out the Austin/San Antonio corridor. The small towns east if IH 35 are yet discovered, most people move west, and are real inexpensive. Pecan trees, rivers, beautiful pastures. I wish I could send you the pictures of the spring flowers. They are the most beautiful in years.
Reform of Obamacare?
That’s simply incorrect. Most texas physicians are diametrically opposed to Obamacare. The few who aren’t are mostly academics.
Not the ones I have spoken with. Including friends who are doctors and the emergency room doctors I spoke with Monday. They were all in favour of reform. Oddly enough, the one person I found against it was the tech who performed my MRI..he said his family doctor, while in favour of reform, is now going to charge each patient of his, $1500 per person, to stay as his patient. He and his wife have two children...so..it would cost them $6000 to stay with this particular doctor. He said they would not pay for it. Sounds a bit unethical to me. ..but no one asked me.
This gives me a smidgen of hope that Lloyd Doggett can be defeated in November. According to various websites, he has about $3,000,000 on hand and his Republican opponent, Donna Campbell, M.D., has only about $28,000. He also has part of liberal Austin in his district. Still, that 72% stuff looks good.
Doggett voted for Obamacare, is a personal injury trial lawyer, and is about as liberal (Marxist is more like it) as a Congressman can get. I live close to, but not in, Doggett’s district. Still, I plan to do what I can to defeat him. If any of you want to help, every little bit helps; and a defeat of Doggett would be a monumental achievement. For those of you who live in a relatively safe Republican district in Texas, this would be a great way to try to make a difference.
He is slated to be redistricted into a seat that will be harder to wim. With luck......
Thanks. I’m going to look into it.
that’s about the % I would of guessed based on my personal observations.
I am not willing to wait. He will always be a well-funded, hard campaigner. Lots of his district is naturally conservative. If antagonism toward Obamacare and the rest of the Democrats’ Marxist agenda won’t defeat him, I’m not so sure redistricting will.
Curious that you have repeatedly said "health care reform" when this poll is referring to the monstrous freedom killer, Obamacare.
Which one are you talking about?
So when do the ceremonies start for the new Capitol of Free America start in Texas?
Seriously, if Washington can’t run the country anymore and is full of traitors then I say man the lifeboats all thee true to thee and run down to Texas and be part of establishing a new Federal Government. It may only be for Texas at first but eventually other states will join in.
You do mean "soil", don't you?
Do you think, being in San Antonio, that it's possible the Drs. you asked were trying the take the politically correct way and agree with the position they thought you held?
In a leftist dictatorship 73% is ignored or -— silenced, unless the public wakes up in time and counters the tyrants.
LOL...perhaps..not sure..thanks. It’s a condition I have...can’t type,can’t spell and confusion on terms. It makes for good laughs at times though, so I’m not complaining....LOL!
No. Especially those who are friends. Those friends of mine know I have reservations about healthcare reform. There is good and bad as far as I can see but they gave me their honest opinions. Also, a doctor friend called last night, I guess since he could not sleep he saw no reason for me to...and he felt healthcare reform was long overdue tho he also has some reservations. I guess we all do. But none were trying to be politically correct.
I asked a dr about that...dr’s quitting..he said what are they going to do to earn a living? They are trained in the medical field. They are not going to leave it. And “vast majority”??? I do not think so. Not from what I can see.
Try checking beyond that. My husband has been in the health care field for over 30 years, knows hundreds of Drs, reads all kinds of accurate materials, knows who's 'speaking' for Drs, and what their political make up is (eg the AMA), and I know that what you are "seeing" is just not accurate.
We will lose many Drs and have many who don't go into medicine because of this horrific bill.
Of course it is limited. I said that from the beginning. It was simply dr’s I was speaking with. Tho we have had quite a few letters to the editor here in our paper from dr’s supporting some kind of health care reform. My dr and my husband’s dr also...are both for some kind of reform and had positive and negative things to say about it..but for the most part were positive. People are not going to stop going into the field of medicine because of this. If they were ever going to do that.it would have been because of hmo’s...and my ob/gyn did retire early because of hmo’s....now he said he might come back with this reform if things..(personal) was different...he has been out of practice for about ten years now. Thanks for your reply tho.
btw..while I freely said it was limited..I beg your pardon..it is not faulty..I was at a large hospital in the emergency room..spoke to three dr’s...spoke with my dr..spoke with a specialist....all were in favour of the healthcare reform...I certainly did not mean to suggest there are not some who are not happy about it...it was very limited. But I also spoke with many friends..as I am want to do..and drive them crazy with my personal “polls”...all were positive..and all said the same thing..no one is leaving medicine..they will still make a very good living..this is the only training they have..what else would they do..and they love what they do..again...main complaint again....was hmo’s..which they hate.
I wonder what percent of this 73 percent is voting Democrat for Congress. None of the Democrat seats in TX (11 or 12 of them) are in danger, are they?
Time to go for a drive in the Hill Country.
Many doctors at “Big Baylor” don’t agree. Still, many expect the make more more because Obamacare will drive up medical costs.
Gerrymandered safe. The question is how the Texas House will go.
I saw a lot of them just getting started during a cross-state trip 10 days ago. I'm tempted to plan another trip in a couple of weeks just to see them again.
not all of them are spoolers...some fine conservative Michiganers have sought refuge in Texas to preserve their own sanity.
That’s good to know!
