It would be a lot easier to say that Dems are obstructionist for voting for something like Obamacare, when the majority of American's did not want it. Congress is not our masters Satanicus, it's the other way around.
[QUOTE=djones520;304669]We've covered this before. Being an obstructionist would be voting against something just to spite it. Voting in favor of what your consituents demand is not.

Then why is the GOP against the PO ? ... Most Americans want a PO.
What people want is the OPTION. Something Obamacare took away. Something a "Public Option" as you would call it would eventually take away as well. Nobody wants to be forced to do anything. The right to choose is what everyone wants.
What is wrong with these polls....... waiting.
Research 2000 (says even some red states want a PO) http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisf...-still-popular

Show the data. How many of those polls explain what a Public Option is? How many of them asked if they wanted government ran healthcare, instead of a coy misdirecting name?
That is why you people call it the Public Option, it's a misleading name. It leads people to think that they will have a choice, when in the end they will not, and we all know it.
Creating a government-administered public health insurance option to compete with private plans
50 APPROVE 42 OPPOSE 8 DK
Imposing a tax on insurers who offer the most expensive health plans, the so-called Cadillac plans, to help pay for health care reform
34 APPROVE 55 DISAPPROVE 11 DK
Admit it , these polls show Americans want a PO ... and after debating it for a year , they know what a PO is. And it DOES leave them a choice between a PO and a Private policy. Get a clue.
Why don't you post a link that backs up your claim that a PO takes away their choice .... WAITING....AGAIN.
