More Bad Signs for Obama.......

Voters consider ObamaCare a tax hike, poll shows
Published July 12, 2012

By a wide margin, American voters say the federal health care overhaul is a tax increase, according to a national poll released Thursday.

The Quinnipiac University poll was released a day after the House of Representatives voted to repeal the law in the wake of the Supreme Court decision upholding it. Five Democrats defected and voted for the bill, no doubt leery of backing a law that Republicans have increasingly tried to describe as a tax increase.

In the latest poll, 55 percent of registered voters said they consider the law indeed to be a tax increase, while 36 percent said otherwise.

Claims that the law is a tax hike are fueled by last month's court ruling, which upheld the individual mandate on the basis that the fine attached to the requirement to buy health insurance is only constitutional under Congress' power to tax.

The Quinnipiac poll, though, did not specifically ask participants about the mandate fine -- so the results could reflect other taxes in the law not related to the mandate.

In a peculiar finding, the poll also showed that by 48-45 percent, Americans agree with the court decision -- yet by 49-43 percent, they also want Congress to repeal it

I just heard a new concept of why JJJ in in Arizona. He is close to being indicted for his close assiociation with a corrupt Chicago political operative that was indicted the week before JJ disappeareed for giving JJ big bucks to fly JJs girlfriend, and keep her in fine surroundings, when she visited him in Chicago, and DC. How would it look if we had another Chicago politician under a shadow this close to the Obama run for reelection. The Campaign doesn't really get started untilthe convention. We don't want the President to have to answer about the locals, do we?

I suppose an impending federal indictment for bribery & racketeering would alter one's mood significantly.
BTW-Has anyone called Blago in the slammer to tell him to exchange that orange jumpsuit for a 3-piece courtroom witness suit?

That is just it. The locals abandoned Blago, and let him take the fall while protecting Obama, and Jackson. He won't soon forget that. He is practicing his testimony every day in his cell, before a mirror.
