If other States would try to get an honest citizenry poll, believe me, millions of us would unleash on the travesty taking place in DC. Millions of Americans, if given the chance to tell what they feel, would tell the truth. I have business associates that work in health care, that are sick of what they've taken just from States paying for their Medical Care, and there kids care. Millions of dollars in freebies, even when Americans cannot afford healthcare or premiums. So many Doc's have complained about having to take care of people they know will never pay them. Obamacare will take from those of us that can afford healthcare and give to millions of poor and illegals. That's theft by deception to me.

that is why the polls have questioning a certain way to come out with the outcome they are looking for. if they was straight up question like, do you want to give illegal aliens amnesty,or do you want to support them or deport them. should illegal aliens get social service or any aide. straight out question is what their supporter do not want.

What is unfair about wanting our laws enforced and our borders secured and seeing our free social services, if needed, being given to families headed by American citizens?

Maybe Its the third world approach that some are clamouring for to resolve this crisis,but should I remind you that America knows better than that?
