A fascinating number in Wednesday's CBS poll is that only 7% of the American public want ObamaCare "kept in place." A full 93% either believe that changes are needed to the law (48%) or want a full repeal (43%). This pits President Obama and Democrat lawmakers -- who thus far have refused to make any meaningful changes -- against 93% of the American people and 72% of Democrats.

Moreover, only 12% of Democrats want ObamaCare "kept as is." Another 12% want it repealed.

Well, they finally found out what's in it -- and they don't like it at all, do they?

My grandmother told me once that she knew a woman who had been on welfare for some years after her husband had died suddenly and left her with 6 young children. It was the 1950s and my grandma said that every month this woman would stand in a long line to collect surplus items like peanut butter, butter, flour, sugar and cheese. I'm not certain whether she received any amount of cash each month to pay for any other items she needed that weren't included in the surplus. My brother remembers hearing that story, too. My brother is a staunch Republican and said the woman didn't deserve anything because she never worked a day in her life. Just the same, in those days, many women were homemakers and not out in the workforce. This woman was a wife and mother and being suddenly left with 6 small children and no husband could not have been easy in those days. Can't be easy any time I suppose. My brother argues that she could have went out and got a factory job, laundress, babysitter, etc. Anything to bring in some income, but then I have to ask who would take care of her children because that would have cost her probably more then she could ever make at some menial job with long hours. If she was out working and couldn't tend to the children or afford a sitter, the county would have taken her children away from her. Not an easy situation for sure. Then my brother adds, she could have went out and found a new guy and got married, thus reducing the surplus population - either that or die. I love my brother but doesn't that seem rather harsh? I don't agree with giving handouts to everyone but come on, a widow with 6 young children and suddenly faced with no means of support deserves some help. Today, there's access to birth control and women and men can plan their families, but in the 1950s, that wasn't so common. I think my brother is angry and very bitter because our dad never helped him out or gave him what he needed when he was growing up. I sympathize with him, and it did make him a stronger person for it, but not necessarily a nicer one. He's a hard worker and earned most of what he has, although I don't think he has always been entirely an honest person. I always tell him he'd make a good > (bad) politician!

60s Chic, I'm a Conservative...as for me...this is the type of family that should be helped...this woman found herself in this situation...it's a VERY sad situation.
What else could she do...they had to survive somehow...

If there's any truth to this at all, you really mean 'somebody else is paying for it.'
