Ugh. Cough this up to either bad or non-existent messaging on this important issue. If (when?) the Supreme Court knocks down Obamacare, there are going to be a lot of people upset that pre-existing conditions are gone. Looking at how dysfunctional Washington has become, chances are slim that any real health care reform will happen for decades and people will once again be at the mercy of insurance companies that care only about profit.
Should Obamacare be struck down, one thing that needs to happen immediately is to force Congress to terminate their luxurious health care plan and go it alone like their constituents. For that matter, the rest of the luxurious perks that Congress receives have to be scrapped. If they're unable to work and get anything done for the public, there's no reason to give them perks that no longer exist for everyone else.
As they like to say when they chop programs for the middle class and poor, everyone needs to "modernize" and change with the times. Let's face it, Congress is out of touch and needs to learn how to work like everyone else and deliver. In the real world, under performing as they do would always result in being fired.
Onto the latest poll that will make you bang your head on the wall.
Fifty-six percent of people are against the healthcare overhaul and 44 percent favor it, according to the online poll conducted from Tuesday through Saturday.
The survey results suggest that Republicans are convincing voters to reject Obama's reform even when they like much of what is in it, such as allowing children to stay on their parents' insurance until age 26.
Strong majorities favor most of what is in the law.
