    About six in ten Americans continue to express support for the so-called “public option” –- which the Senate appears to have sidelined for now. Views on this haven’t changed recently. As was the case last month, Democrats favor it and Republicans are opposed.

    Uh huh. Then how do you explain that in a recent CBS poll, 49%are against compared to only36% for Obamacare? You can spin things all you want but just because people favor a public option(we'll get to this in a second), doesn't mean that they favor the crap that's being shoved down their throats. As for the public OPTION, they favor just that. An option. What you're ilk wants is not an option but total control. Now, go back and poll that same group of people and ask them if they favor the government plan being the only option and tell me how that poll works out.

    The "public option" is simply the means to destroy private health insurance. It's a step in the road to single-payer.

    Which is something this knucklehead doesn't understand. Perhaps if they opened a dictionary and looked up the word option, they'd know why people polled favorably.

    December of 2009? HAHAHAHA! You are digging deep to justify your denial. The Dems are going to lose big time in November and likely in 2012. The Liberals have unmasked themselves and their agenda under the Obama regime and Americans have decided that they want to have Americans running THEIR government instead of Liberals.
    "Our president delivered his State of the Union message to Congress. That is one of the things his contract calls for -- to tell congress the condition of the country. This message, as I say, is to Congress. The rest of the people know the condition of the country, for they live in it, but Congress has no idea what is going on in America, so the president has to tell 'em." ~ Will Rogers

    Even though this article is very, very old, it continues to say:

    But as both sides of the debate have dug in to assert their positions
    this fall, the public’s views on the impact of reform remain steady
    and skeptical: few Americans think they’ll personally be helped by the
    reforms, and more than twice as many more think they’ll be hurt, while
    four in ten foresee no impact.

    HOW WOULD PROPOSED CHANGES AFFECT YOU PERSONALLY?
    Now 11/2009 10/2009
    Would help 16% 19% 18%
    Would hurt 34 34 31
    No effect 42 41 45
    Not sure 8 6 6
    Context. It's important.
    "In England a king hath little more to do than to make war and give away places; which in plain terms, is to impoverish the nation and set it together by the ears. A pretty business indeed for a man to be allowed eight hundred thousand sterling a year for, and worshipped into the bargain! Of more worth is one honest man to society and in the sight of God, than all the crowned ruffians that ever lived."
    —Thomas Paine, Common Sense

    59% favor Public Option
    I read somewhere that around 50% of people don't pay taxes. Hmm...
    Nothing helps a bad mood like spreading it around.

    He's always quoting some poll or another where a majority of the electorate wish to steal from the the minority.
