A poll released today by the Washington Post appears to indicate support for a public option is rising.*They claim*a 2% bump in the last month*means the public option has therefore*“rebounded from its summertime lows and wins clear majority support from the public.”
*Inventive headlines aside, this poll actually indicates that disapproval for Obamacare has solidified
Two months ago Obama began this huge blitz. He spoke to congress, [held] a primetime press conference, [he did] all*five Sunday shows and he has not moved public opinion one bit. That’s the big story. The big story is that public opinion has settled in.
A veteran of the Hillarycare debate, Bill Kristol has heard this music before and knows how it ends. Despite a major address to Congress by a newly elected Democratic President with big majorities in both Houses, Hillarycare*”didn’t go anywhere,” he said.
President Obama has the same ingredients today as the Clinton’s did in 1993 and*Kristol believes Obamacare will also fail. “It’s unpopular and that’s the bottom line. The President has had months to pass it and he hasn’t.” http://blog.heritage.org/2009/10/20/...-of-obamacare/
