I wonder how many of the protester are the same people that protested "death panels" at the tea-parties, then when home and realized that their own insurance companies also provide for "end-of-life" counseling.

And Barak is struggling with his Martha Vineyard vacation, Hawaii vacations, Indonesia to show the girls where he grew up in about two weeks! Spreading the wealth baby. Say is he paying for his trips, not most of it. Guess who is paying to help him with his trips, take a wild guess. The taxpayers, now please let's talk about George's trips to his ranch in Texas and Maine looking forward to you saying Georgy took more vacations, well will see in the long run who takes more and more expensive ones too.... He is also struggling with getting Obamacare through. And this is probably his best year, wait until we get a new congress 2010, lame duck president come the 2010 elections!!!!!!!! T=

The Obama Plan is not popular:
Asked if Congress should pass the current health bill or start fresh, respondents said "start fresh" by 61%-32%. For independents the split was 65%-24%.

On using the budget reconciliation process to circumvent a Senate filibuster to help pass the bill, 51% were opposed vs. 35% in favor. Independents dislike the idea by 57%-29%, with 39% opposing it strongly.

By 41%-27%, Americans were more likely to oppose than support lawmakers who voted for the current health care reform bill. Among independents the gap was slightly wider, at 42%-22%.

Health care is taking a toll on Obama's overall approval. The IBD/TIPP Presidential Leadership Index dipped 0.2 in March to the neutral 50. Half of respondents say he's doing a bad job on health care, vs. 31% who say he's doing well. Those with strong opinions lean heavily negative.

The poll also found that last month's health care summit changed few minds. But of those it did, slightly more (22%) said it made them less likely to support the bill than to back it (18%). For independents it was 23%-15%.

Face it - The bill is toast.
How about starting with COST SAVINGS rather than who pays for the bloated federal jobs implied by the golden turkey bill.

85 percent of Americans like their insurance plan. So we are going to redo the whole system and get taxed more when the overwhelming majority of American oppose this. Hey Barak take out your earplugs, what part of N O do you not understand. You will be hearing N O to all your liberal agenda the next three years. Loud and clear N O
