Zogby Poll Confirms, Americans Want to Start Over
The Hill reports:
“In a brutal assessment of the Democratically authored healthcare reform bills pending in Congress and the party’s approach to healthcare, more than half of the respondents to a new Zogby International-University of Texas Health Science Center poll said that lawmakers should start from scratch.
“Of the more than 2,500 people surveyed from Jan. 29 to Feb. 1, 57 percent agreed with a statement that Congress should start over — which is exactly what Republicans are demanding and what President Barack Obama insists he will not do.
“Moreover, 56.4 percent of people indicated they would prefer Congress to tackle healthcare reform on a step-by-step basis, not take the comprehensive approach as embodied in the legislation that passed the House and Senate last year but has stalled fore the past month.”
But do not expect the Dems to listen to a Dem pollster.
Start over? That is what the Republicans want! We’re not doing that, the President has already said.
So they will meet with the Republicans, declare they have already adopted Republican ideas and that they need to finish health care reform, so they will try reconciliation — and fail, again.
I am tanned, rested and ready. Big fun is on the way.
