CNN: (CNN) – One year after President Barack Obama signed the health care reform bill into law, a new national poll indicates that attitudes toward the plan have not budged.
According to a CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey released Wednesday, on the one year anniversary of the signing of the law, a majority continue to oppose the measure, but some of the opposition is from Americans who think the law is not liberal enough.
Thirty-seven percent of Americans support the measure, with 59 percent opposed. That's basically unchanged from last March, when 39 percent supported the law and 59 percent opposed the measure.[...]
There are two ways to look at the poll's overall numbers. One is that 59 percent oppose the law. The second is that if you add the 13 percent who oppose the law because it's not liberal enough to the 37 percent that support the law, you come up with 50 percent of the American people who disagree with the Republican leadership on the issue. The GOP gained control of the House and many state houses and legislatures in the November election on the basis, many experts said, of their strong opposition to what they said was "government controlled health care."CNN's silly mental gymnastics trying to show that if ObamaCare was more liberal, more people would like it is a real stretch. While 13% said they hate the bill because it is not liberal enough, there is no guarantee that the 37% who support it now would continue to support a more liberal version. Nice try CNN, but no smoke.
It should come as no surprise that people still hate ObamaCare. The more time that goes by, the more nasty crap we find in the bill. Just recently we learned about the hidden $105 billion in bill. Nasty surprises like this will make sure ObamaCare is never popular.
