Health Care: The Changing Voice of America

Underlying all the angst is not some conflict of principles, but the cold reality of public opinion. Rasmussen reports that the public is decisively turning away from this legislation. The lowest number yet recorded (38%) now support the bills in Congress while 56% are opposed. This is an astonishing margin of opposition. The latest survey was conducted just as the Senate was voting on Saturday and Rasmussen reports that those who were polled after the vote were slightly less supportive than those polled before the vote. In fact, the more people know about the bills the less they support them, belying the argument that once something passes it will change minds. Just the opposite is more likely. Even more remarkable is that 70% of Independents are now opposed to the legislation.
