The USA is owned by Gannet, a left leaning news organization(MSM, which is not an independent polling entity.

"The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey shows that 54% of Likely U.S. Voters at least somewhat favor repeal of the health care bill, while 39% are at least somewhat opposed. This includes 43% who Strongly Favor repeal and 28% who are Strongly Opposed to it. The survey of 1,000 Likely Voters was conducted on June 23-24, 2012 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC. See methodology."

The next few months will be very telling. First, as many as 50,000 benefit and pension heavy Govt Bureaucrats will have to be hired to implement and manage the huge numbers of new regulations imposed by the Bill including thousands of new IRS personnel to handle the collecting the 22 new taxes on employers and citizens included in the Bill.

Blue States will submit to the burdens and all the additional taxes more readily than the Red States. The decline in quality and availability of health care mandated in the massive Bill will be judged plenty good enough for middle class families who will bear the brunt of the financial impact.

Blue State residents will not question any sacrifice or reduction in personal freedoms demanded by Mr. Obama and Mrs. Pelosi. As in Cuba, and North Korea, Blue State residents are far more willing to be managed, controlled, and regulated by Bureaucrats.

A new poll reveals that Americans are evenly split on the Supreme Court's health care decision -- and that, unsurprisingly, opinions are closely tied to political party.
The USA Today/Gallup poll found that 46 percent of respondents agree with the court's ruling that the law is Constitutional, while 46 percent disagree. Seventy-nine percent of Democrats back the high court's decision, while only 13 percent of Republicans do. Independents are divided, with 45 percent agreeing with the court and 42 percent disagreeing.

Wow, in a matter of hour, after the Supreme Court deemed the law that every unpatriotic right-wing nut screamed and shouted to be unconstitutional, CONSTITUTIONAL – the law went from being unpopular to popular among Independents, and evenly split among everyone else… WOW!

Another punch in the gut for these ignorant unpatriotic right-wing bastards, LOL.

That's quite evident in this venue, from hysterical thumb-sucking, bed-witting O'bots to some of the topix 'mods' who love to push the 'erase' button when Truth gets in the way of their ideology. This is the same thing that took place in other 'socialist' environs, such as the former "National Socialist Party" (NAZI) and the "Union of Soviet Socialist Republics" (USSR).

The following best defines this mental defect....

"Conservatives get angry when you tell them a lie, Liberals get angry when you tell them the Truth."

Your perspicacity sucks.

Obamacare was sold under the commerce clause.

Nope.

It's a tax.

That it was determined constitutional for a different reason is known as 'pulling a Homer'-- "to succeed despite idiocy".

"The USA TODAY/Gallup Poll of 1,012 adults has a margin of error of +/-4 percentage points."

So all your bluster about independents disappears in the margin of error.

LOL

How about this?

--By more than 2 to 1, those polled say politics played too great a role in the court's decision. That view is most frequently expressed by opponents of the decision — 80% of Republicans and 67% of independents say they feel that way, compared with 47% of Democrats.

So much fun poking holes in your self-proclaimed "perspicacity".

This law has already been upheld by the supreme court. A repeal will never pass the senate. In other words the law stays in place.

Beginning in 2014, you will be required by law to have health insurance and to attach proof of insurance to your tax return.

If you fail to insure, you will be fined — with the penalty rising to $695 ($2,085 per family) in 2016 or 2.5% of your adjusted gross income, whichever is greater.

If your employer fails to offer you health insurance, your employer can be fined as much as $2,000 per employee per year.

The type of insurance you must have — including copays, deductibles and the employee’s share of the premium — will all be determined by federal regulations, rather than by you and your employer.

If you are not covered by an employer plan, Medicare, Medicaid or other government plan, you will be required to buy insurance in a government-regulated health insurance exchange, where competing insurers will offer the government-mandated health insurance benefit package.

How your doctor practices medicine and how you obtain care are likely to substantially change

Thanks a lot Obama

$523 billion of health reform’s first 10-year cost will be paid for by reduced spending on Medicare enrollees

This is fine unless you are on Medicare, seniors are going to be getting less.

Of the 15 million people expected to enroll in Medicare Advantage programs, 7½ million will lose their plans entirely, according to Medicare’s chief actuary, and the remainder will face higher premiums and lower benefits. Nearly 6 million retired employees will lose their employer drug coverage, according to the most recent Medicare Trustees report.

A new tax on health insurance is likely to cost the families of employees of small businesses more than $500 a year in higher premiums.

A 40% tax on the extra coverage provided by expensive “Cadillac” plans will apply to about one-third of all private health insurance in 2019; and because the tax threshold is not indexed to medical inflation, over time the tax will eventually reach every health plan. Scores of other items are already being taxed or soon will be — ranging from tanning salons to the sale of your home, in some cases.

Health insurers will have to raise premiums for everyone in order to charge people with pre-existing conditions less than the expected cost of their care.

Young people, for example, could see a doubling or tripling of their premiums, according to industry estimates.

In order for employers to provide health insurance (or more generous insurance) to their employees, they will have to reduce what they pay in wages and in other benefits. The extra burden on employers could cost as many as 700,000 jobs by 2019.

Tthanks a lot Obama

You take a lot for granted. Majority of Americans were against it at the onset, and are still against it. Because SCOTUS ruled against it, doesn't negate the fact it can be struct down by a NEW congress. And that will be determined in November. It's not over until the fat lady sings....

Rasmussen is the polling arm of Fux-news and thypicaly give the Repukes about a 3% house advantage.

Even though the Fux-heads have been brainwashed by the $100 MILLION propaganda effort to demonize Obamacare....The FACT is REPUBLICANS SUPPORT OBAMA’S HEALTH REFORMS — AS LONG AS HIS NAME ISN’T ON THEM:
* Eighty percent of Republicans favor “creating an insurance pool where small businesses and uninsured have access to insurance exchanges to take advantage of large group pricing benefits.” That’s backed by 75 percent of independents.[...]

* Fifty two percent of Republicans favor “allowing children to stay on parents insurance until age 26.” That’s backed by 69 percent of independents.

* Seventy eight percent of Republicans support “banning insurance companies from denying coverage for pre-existing conditions; 86 percent of Republicans favor “banning insurance companies from cancelling policies because a person becomes ill.” Those are backed by 82 percent of independents and 87 percent of independents.

* One provision that isn’t backed by a majority of Republicans: The one “expanding Medicaid to families with incomes less than $30,000 per year.”[They'd prefer the poor DIE!]

The Reich-wing will make a mega-mutli- MILLION effort to turn Obamacare into the new Roe V Wade.

The Koch-suckers have already began the effort:

"A conservative advocacy group closely aligned with the Tea Party announced a $9 million swing-state push against President Obama and the healthcare law.
"The announcement by Americans for Prosperity (AFP), which is largely funded by the conservative Koch brothers, comes one day after the Supreme Court ruled to uphold the vast majority of the law in a major coup for Obama....
"The television ad calls the health law “one of the largest tax increases in history”— a refrain expected to form the foundation of GOP arguments against the law as the election draws near." http://thehill.com/video/policy-areas/235691-...
