Starting over is what 75% of the America people want.
CNN reports that 75% of the American people either want it killed and the Congress to move on or for them to START OVER.
Putting moderate Dems in charge of crafting the BILL is a great idea.
I thought you were being facetious in your previous post. I'm still not sure if you're being serious or not.

Even the heavily right-leaning Rasmussen poll shows gaining support..especially in the public option, which has been general parallel to fear of losing one's health care coverage:

Here's the opposite end of the spectrum, which shows overwhelming support:

Gallup has been widely recognized as one of the most accurate and non-biased:
Most Americans only 50% disapprove:

The success of universal healthcare in Massachusetts has the rest of the country anxious to lap at the government trough.

I agree..what a joke.
Cantor is no better than Boehner. He's the one in the very beginning that said reform cannot interfere with the free market. Then he said competition is paramount in choice..but then opposed the public option, which is exactly what free market competition is.
Now he's howling "START OVER"..when the public option was one of the first things that the dems gave up. Cantor (and McConnell) know that Obama has said that if they did start over..the public option would be back on the table.
Besides "start over" and "step by step"..the repetitive talking point is that Americans don't want reform, when most credible polls (which excludes Rasmussen) clearly shows support for reform..including the public option.
True.

For the past couple days..the right wing talking point is that "nuclear option" and reconciliation" are one and the same.

Silly..but an obvious testimony to their strategy of say it enough and flood the media with it until the faithful followers believe it to be true.

Aside from the lemmings that follow in suit..people get it.

Cognitive dissonance on a grand scale.

well judging by your post I believe you. why when refering to the President of OUR country do you continue to use child like insults do you really think your clever??what are you 4 years old? Because saying Bush is smarter then Obama is laughable...<quoted text>
Bush comes from the real world. Obanana comes from the crooked chicago machine and his mentors and friends are marxists, socialists, america haters and to be honest flat out communists. Please don't ask me to list these people because we both know its a fact and documented. Bush is smart enough not to beleive in failed ideologies and also not to befriend antiamerican anticapitalism scum. Yup! He's muuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuch smarter!!! He also knew people want to kill us,,, obanana still doesn't get it.

Did you see Larry Summers' news conference yesterday? The newest Obama job creation program is to increase taxes. Summers said the tax increase program was approved by Marx.
Hehe.

For a good reason- the Chamber is a fascist Reich wing organization that only supports fascist polices- why would any sane person invite only the wealthy class to such a meeting?
You talk of "good old-fashioned hard work" well, unions represent them, not the Chamber of Horrors.
Was that a serious reply?

When Obama mentioned 57 states, he was including protectorates over which we have dominion, at least he's inclusive of those who Rethuglicans would sooner forget.
Like all politicians, Obama is no more religious that Tush was, but has to be a member, rarely attending some church for the sake of optics.
And when did he distance himself from his "white" grandmother????
Never heard that one- probably because I don't watch FLOXED propaganda.
Your criticisms are thin, and frankly, when compared to the 8 years of death and destruction wrought by the Bush Crime Family, there is no comparison.
Stop trying to deflect from the real issues, gaffes aside.
As the years go by you will find it harder and harder to beleive your own propaganda. Your good at spin. msnbc may have a spot for you right after that nice little boy maddow. You know her don't you? She's the one that was trumpeting the end of the Republican party back in 08. Now that the Republicans are going to make signifigant gains in November and will no doubt make even more in 2012 including the white house you will be forced to once again come back to planet earth. 8 years of death? You mean the Iraq war voted on by congress? I thought your medication took care of your bush derangement syndrome? Your a joke!

Obama was correct when he referred to 57 states. However, he was not referring to the US. He was referring to the 57 Moselem states, right number wrong country. Will we make it 58?
Really
