Quote of the Year on ObamaCare

This quote should become the centerpiece of the anti-ObamaCare activists; it’s an absolute bill killer. It’s from the assistant director of Quinnipiac University Polling Institute, Peter Brown:
“It’s a good thing for those pushing
the health care overhaul in Congress that
the American people don’t get a vote.”
Brown was referring to the newest Quinnipiac poll of ObamaCare, which found that voters reject it by a stunning 14-point margin, 38 supporting and 52 opposing:
–Voters disapprove 52 – 38 percent of the health care reform proposal under consideration in Congress, and they disapprove 56 – 38 percent of President Obama’s handling of health care, down from 53 – 41 percent in a November 19 survey.
–American voters say 63 – 30 percent that extending health insurance to all will raise their cost of health care, although they are split 47 – 46 percent on whether they are willing to pay more to make sure everyone is covered.
–Voters split 48 – 46 percent on whether they think covering everyone will decrease the quality of their own care, but by 71 – 21 percent they do not think universal coverage is worth lower quality of care.
Oh, and by the way: Quinnipiac has President Barack H. Obama’s job approval at 46% favorable, 44% unfavorable; this is below even Rasmussen — and Quinnipiac University is certainly not considered a “conservative” pollster.
Moderate Democrats must be made to understand that by voting for cloture on this bill, they are signing their own career death warrants in 2010 or 2012. After the next election, they’ll actually have to find honest work.
