In a new CNN poll released today, 59 percent of Americans say they oppose the health-insurance reform bill passed Sunday night, while just 39 percent support it. (13 percent say they oppose it because it isn’t liberal enough.)
I would imagine that most people don't even understand what's in the Health Care Reform package....on both the Republican and Democratic side...so it doesn't really bother me that people oppose it.
It was debated for over 1 year. BO had 58 speeches including 2 prime time. That is plenty of time. Your reasoning is liberal wishful thinking.
You have more faith in the intellectual vigor of Americans than I do.
I think most people are very ignorant on political issues like this. Most get their info from 24-hrs news channels (CNN, MSNBC, Fox, etc.). Fox is amazingly biased. MSNBC is also significantly biased. CNN seems to be biased as well but in a more subtle way.
And people like Rush, Hannity, Olberman, O'Reilly are not news... I think a lot of people do not understand that.
And do polls really matter? What if Bush would have followed the polls concerning Iraq?
It seems like Bush has balls and no brains--Obama has brains and no balls.
