Poll – 55% want health care legislation repealed

Not just fix it, but repeal it. More than half of Americans don’t like the legislation or the way it was forced through Congress. You’ll see plenty of video online with free-loaders thinking it’s Christmas, where all they will need to do is pay their co-pay and everything will be OK.

There is no free lunch, and in the most recent Rasmussen poll, many seem to realize it. Hat tip to Ed Morrissey at Hot Air and Jim Hoft at Gateway Pundit.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey, conducted on the first two nights after the president signed the bill, shows that 55% favor repealing the legislation. Forty-two percent (42%) oppose repeal. Those figures include 46% who Strongly Favor repeal and 35% who Strongly Oppose it.

In terms of Election 2010, 52% say they’d vote for a candidate who favors repeal over one who does not. Forty-one percent (41%) would cast their vote for someone who opposes repeal.

Just yesterday, Gallup indicated everyone was on board with the plan. Huh?

But yesterday, CBS News reported 62% overall – and 41 percent of Democrats – want the GOP to keep fighting the legislation. Hat tip to AP at Hot Air.

The poll finds that 62 percent want Congressional Republicans to keep challenging the bill, while 33 percent say they should not do so. Nearly nine in ten Republicans and two in three independents want the GOP to keep challenging. Even 41 percent of Democrats support continued challenges.

    Now that Frankenstein is ALIVE the Big Lie is starting to collapse. People  see that our warnings were  not only real but vastly UNDERSTATED.  There is an immediate economic reaction to Obamacare . After months of a fragile stabilization at 9% unemployment , a  new round of layoffs is coming. Prior layoffs were cushioned by a fall in gas prices , but this new wave of blood letting will be in the face of substantial price increases as all these new taxes sandbag the consumer . The anger is already boiling over. I suggest somebody organize a civil disobediance  movement  before this rage flows into riots and more random acts of terror. People have their breaking point, and many won't  be able to hold it until November. Please don't hit the bottle as the hospitals won't be able to save your liver. Hit the bible because I can assure you the left is devoted to Satan.

    Repeal is the way to go.  There are plenty of good things that can be done in the name of healthcare insurance reform that don't need the government taking over a sixth of the economy, and plenty of things that can get legitimate bipartisan support.


    The leftards deliberately ignored the voice of the people, hoping that the memory of the people is short.   Not likely.  We love our children and grandchildren, and don't have the advantage of being to shield them from this travesty of a bill and worse, the gigantic deficits it will produce.
