The ideological divide between the “ruling Class” and the rest of us has rarely been wider, according to a new USA Today Pew poll. What it is reporting is not good news for King Barack. His subjects are not eager to shut up and get in line.
Pew spoke to over 1500 adults and found that, in spite of all the King’s efforts (like enlisting luminaries like Bubba, the Hip Hop world, and even the Baltimore Ravens), Obamacare has lost support since its passage.
The opposition to Obamacare is at an all-time high of 53%, and support for it is at an all-time low level of support of just 42%. What’s worse for Obamacare’s chances is that by an impressive 41/26 ratio, the intensity of opposition is much stronger than the intensity of support.
Americans don’t like Obamacare and never have.
The failure of Obamacare is now so pronounced that according to Pew, “For the first time in polling that stretches back more than two decades, Americans narrowly prefer Republicans in dealing with health care policy, 40%-39%.”
Moreover, even before they have experienced much of the early damage of Obamacare, a plurality (41/25) of those surveyed already expect continued bad news from this monster as it unfolds. Topping off this vein of bad news for the Left is that 47% of us see Obamacare as something bad for America, and just 35% see it as a plus.
This bad news for THEM could easily be turned into good news for US. If the generally feckless Republicans in the House can bring themselves to pass a continuing resolution to run all of the government except Obamacare, vital time could be gained. During this window of time, the bad effects of Obamacare would begin to pile up; and the pressure to never fund it would grow as well.
As of now, a resolution to do just that, proposed by Georgia Republican Tom Graves, has enlisted 70 cosponsors from all over the country. The way to kill the King’s monster is before us; but as always is the question with this bunch in the House: Is the will there as well?
Keep the pressure on your Representative. We can kill this thing.
