Reid re-introduces public option

October 26, 2009

Fitting that it is close to Halloween:  like the evil creature that just refuses to die, Reid reintroduces the public option on the senate floor, saying polls show the majority of the people want it.

What polls is he reading?  Here are Rasmussen polls, some released even today:

  • 57% think healthcare bill will increase costs
  • 53% believe it will decrease quality
  • 49% say no bill  is better than current bill
  • 45% favor passage (before today’s announcement)
  • 34% say the US is heading in the right direction

And perhaps most tellingly,

  • 38% say deficit reduction is the most important issue while only
  • 23% say healthcare is

Mr Reid: Where in all those numbers do you see a majority in favor of your bill?

The plain fact is that the Democratic party is determined to ram healthcare down the throats of an unwilling American public come what may.  They don’t give a tinker’s dam what the voters or the taxpayer think.

Continuing to voice our opposition is essential.   We also need to consider our response should this abomination be passed.
