Rasmussen: PelosiCare no improvement over ObamaCare

posted at 11:35 am on November 2, 2009 by Ed Morrissey

The release of the new health-care overhaul bill in the House by Nancy Pelosi has had a definite impact on the polling for ObamaCare.  According to Rasmussen, it made it worse.  Opposition to the effort has increased again to a twelve-point margin, after briefly dropping down to six points last week:

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi introduced the House version of health care reform legislation last week, but most voters are still opposed to the effort.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 42% now favor the health care plan proposed by President Obama and congressional Democrats. That’s down from 45% a week ago but unchanged from two weeks ago.

Fifty-four percent (54%) now oppose the legislative effort, up three points since last week.

Fifty-five percent of people say that the bill will increase costs, not decrease costs, and almost as many (52%) now believe that it will cause a decline in the quality of care.  Only 27% believe that it will improve health-care quality, which makes it much more difficult politically for the Democrats.  If they support an effort that majorities believe will make the American health-care system more costly and less effective, that could be one of the biggest political albatrosses in many a Congressional election.

The internals look even worse.  Among independent voters, 58% now oppose the health-care overhaul, with 50% of them strongly opposing it.  Majorities of both men (54%) and women (53%) oppose it now, which means the White House’s efforts to frame this as a “womens issue” with the First Lady have flopped.  The only age demographic to back this is the 18-29 year old likely voters, and even that comes in at an anemic 51%.  Even those voters acknowledge that the price of health care will go up, not down, by a plurality of 47%.  All other age demographics have clear majorities believing that, as well as majorities believing health care will get worse rather than better or staying the same (65+ a plurality at 48%).

If this was any other domestic policy item, Congress would be smart enough to drop it.  Even with the progressives demanding action, though, the closer we get to 2010, the less likely this bill becomes.  With these kinds of numbers, a yes vote would be political suicide even for some Democrats in the House and Senate, especially with deficits skyrocketing and unemployment pushing ever higher.  (via Moe Lane at Redstate)

Of course there’s no improvement. PelosiCare is simply another ghoul from the Democratic House of Policy Horrors.

More of the same old lipstick on a pig.

From what I have read recently, the small percentage of those to be covered at the trough of government give-away’s could have been covered by the private health insurance companies in concert as a matter of public service, compassion, or seeding the public for future coverage as most of these recipients would obtain better jobs, gain in salaries, and be able to pay for their health insurance on their own dime at some point in the future.

Instead, we get a rehash of the same old same old…lipstick on a pig…and given the wonderful way the H1N1 government-controlled vaccine program worked out…this lipstick is going to cost all of us a super huge bundle over the next several decades.

For what?

Damned expensive lipstick.

Would that be by improving care from those new rainbow unicorn doctors that are all the rage?

Bad day to be a dem: You’re behind in all three off-year races tomorrow; your Commander in Chief continues to tank in the polls, down to -13 today; and your flagship legislation has received a loud “no thanks” from the voters.

On the upside, Joe Biden is campaigning for Owens in New York, so he’s bound to say something hilariously inappropriate. That’ll lighten everyone’s mood.

Actually “If this was any other domestic policy item, Congress would be smart enough to drop it” AND it actually had anything to do with health care they’d drop it.

But since it has nothing at all to do with health care but state control of the citizenry and socialism they will keep charging ahead.

NoDonkey on November 2, 2009 at 12:29 PM

a capella,

18+ yr.old Democrats are used to mommy/daddy footing the bill for everything, and twisting money from their cash-cow parents and their generation twisting tax funds from government. Reality to them is having someone with more money than they have pay the bill for them. That’s what minorities and young adults (18-30) too often believe to be their “right”. Too many commercials play on the word “deserve”, proving that point.

Newspeak began a few generations ago. We witness the legislated word “entitlement”: money was to be liberally stolen from taxpayers in the name of “doing good” for corrupt government and corrupted society.

Doing good? Young adults need a wake up call to “doing the most good” by volunteering at a Salvation Army and see that even the least amongst us need to exercise self determination in order to make responsible use of a helping hand.

btw, PBS is promoting Obama’s socialist administration as THE means of saving America the same as FDR “saved” America from the Great Depression. AS IF the CCC “relief” jobs accomplishing public works in the national parks and national dams are equivalent to modern wasted “welfare” given to Pookie couch potatoes.

1. FDR excluded blacks from the CCC.
2. the CCC prepared unemployed youth for the military via hard physical labor, and sent 4/5 of each laborer’s wages directly home to parents.
3. There was no tax levied on those young men who chose not to participate in the CCC program, whether they stayed on their family farms scratching a living, or because they belonged to the upper crust Ivy League and were representing the insensitivity of the gilded age.

If PBS and Obama think that today’s Americans are impressed by wasteful and selfish extravagance as seen by Obama’s Stimulus Package and Cash for Clunkers that only benefit Obama’s political crony bureaucracy, they are wrong. We are not country hicks who reached a 6th grade education and struck out on our own to make a living as FDR’s CCC generation were. And we’ve already read Amity Schlaes FORGOTTEN MAN. I criticize further the Obama’s personal extravagance. He pretends it’s acceptable behavior that he waste tax dollars, sends a spare Air Force One on a photo op (treating financial donors to a joy ride over the Statue of Liberty), or uses the Air Force One or his military copter to go to dinner out-of-town to satisfy Michelle’s demand, rather than to an in town restaurant, and wait for that out-of-town dinner until they’re there on location for national/international business. Obama’s the one complaining he hasn’t had enough time yet to read any of the health-care bills to date, and demonstrates total ignorance of Republican health-care proposals. He bitched and moaned too long that he didn’t have time to “study” McChrystal’s report. It’s one thing for the Mrs. to hand out Halloween candy to the kiddies. But for this Potus to leave his military hanging while he exploits ‘trick or treat’ to let off steam is inexcusable.

Doughboy on November 2, 2009 at 11:44 AM

You may have a point. And if the GOP members of Congress had any brains, they’d be pulling together the best components of any of their competing bills right now. Then, on Wednesday morning, when the media will be shoving microphones into their faces about the three elections, they should say that the three wins are a rejection of the Obama administration, which is exemplified by his approach to healthcare reform.

Then, they should immediately turn to a succint outline of their proposals for covering those who are uninsurable (Rush said on Fox News that it’s, say, 12 to 15 million) and then proposals for reducing premiums for all of the rest of us–sale across state lines, elimination of state mandates, and lawsuit-abuse reform. At the same time, they need to contrast it with a list of the horrible nonsense in the leading Dem bills.

The GOP could really turn the tables of this discussion on the Dems by capitalizing on these wins. Granted, the media gives them no airtime. But they’re about to get some, so they should use it. The timing would be perfect. Unemployment is rising, and we’re heading into the holidays. Most right-thinking Americans want long-term solutions, not handouts. And they’ll be gathering with family over the next six weeks during two major holidays. The question on many minds will be: “What the f**k is Obama doing to our country?”

Carpe diem, GOP. Don’t blow this as I suspect you will.

BuckeyeSam on November 2, 2009 at 12:41 PM

Yeah, good strategery, Democrats. Put one of the most hated politicians in the country in charge of revamping an already disliked bill, then slap said politician’s name on it and expect the proletariat to suddenly love it.

Please explain to me how the White House can frame health care reform as a women’s issue while taxing tampons.

Anyone know of a good place to purchase a Don’t Tread on Me flag?

Google it. I got my “Don’t tread on me” T-shirt from a place I found on line.

Exactly, she should have had it tatooed in braille, on her butt.

Director of Planned Parenthood, Abbie Johnson, resigns after seeing an ultrasound of an abortion. She now works for Coalition for Life. She had an epiphany. It seems Planned Parenthood, having trouble in the economy, is pushing for more abortions. They have now gone to court to get a temporary restraining order against her to protect their clients and employees. Ms. Johnson had worked for them for 8 years. One more for the conservative cause and for life.

I hope I live to see the day that state governors tell Washington to go to hell. Only a resurgence in State sovereignty can stop the 535 idiots in DC from running our country into the ground…
