Gallup: Americans turn on
government-guaranteed health care

Daily Caller, by Matthew Boyle

Original Article

Posted By:Drive, 11/30/2012 8:31:29 AM

A new Gallup poll shows that 54 percent of Americans think it is not the federal government’s responsibility to ensure all citizens have health care coverage. This is the first time Gallup trends have shown a majority of Americans holding this opinion since 2000, according to Gallup’s Jeffrey Jones. From 2000 until around the time President Barack Obama was elected, polls showed an easy majority of Americans supported government-ensured health care. In most years during that time frame, more than 60 percent of Americans thought the government should make sure everyone had health care.

I agree with above posters. Polls at this point are meaningless. The only poll that counted was held on the 6th of this month and these people voted otherwise.

I really don´t want to hear about how they feel now. American subjects knew that the only way to stop obamacare and slow down the soviet-like takeover by government was to not re-elect obama - but they did anyway. Now I hope the worst of the obamacare prognostications turn out to be true. My sympathy is officially turned off.

0bamacare, if the Stupid Party can get its act together, will systematically destroy the ´Rats as an organized nation wide entity starting 2014 and continuing in 2016. This is a blessing in disguise. Though as Churchill would have put it, very effectively disguised as of now.

And John Roberts thought the American voter would get rid of ObamaCare. He and the American voter both missed their opportunity and now it´s here to stay.

Its pretty hard to overturn it now. 130% of Obama voters got what they asked for. Apparently purple dye and the concept of one vote per voter is too racist for America.

There is no satisfaction to be derived in this poll what so ever. The fact is a majority of Americans voted in support of government controlled healthcare last month. It doesn´t matter a wit that they were too dumb to know it.

I have seen the enemy, and they are US.
We elected officials who voted for the
new Health Care law. I have already seen
my new rate and my 2013 brochure. It isn´t
pretty to see what is now in place, and what will be on the near Horizon. In a year, more
and more uninformed people will begin to see
just how they are impacted by Obamacare, and they will not like how it feels. Maybe they cannot read the legalese in their plans brochure, if they have a plan, but they will feel the result in real time. It will no longer just be something people in Washington are discussing, it will be a real event in their lives, and one that most will find revolting.

Today is Earth Day. Fox News’ The Five opened its show with a nearly 15 minute segment titled “Earth Day Hysteria.” The goal appeared to be to prove that scientists’ warnings about climate change are overblown and should be ignored if not outright mocked and co-host Eric Bolling was the ringleader of the effort. But he found an adversary in Bob Beckel, who challenged the status quo by presenting actual data on the rise of CO2 levels from NASA, of all places. But before Beckel got to his chart, Bolling took some time to “praise” President Barack Obama for what

GOP Savages Harry Reid: ´If at First
You Don’t Succeed, Lie, Lie Again
Weekly Standard, by Daniel Halper    Original Article
Posted By: Drive- 4/23/2014 8:13:24 AM     Post Reply
The Republican National Committee has released a brutal memo on Senate majority leader Harry Reid, savaging him for repeatedly lying. The memo, under the name of press secretary Kirsten Kukowski, is titled "Nothing’s Too Unethical for Harry Reid." "Harry Reid is having a bad month," the memo begins. "He was caught funneling campaign money to his relatives. His Senate Majority PAC was caught lying to voters. And he was caught hypocritically accepting money tied to people he calls ´un-American.´ As he desperately clings to power, is there anything Harry Reid won’t do to promote his own self interests?"

Illinois GOP leaders say state can´t

The top Republicans in the Illinois Legislature are pushing back against Democrats´ plan to offer $100 million in taxpayer money to lure President Obama´s presidential library to Chicago, arguing the cash-strapped state can´t afford the investment. Minority Leader Jim Durkin said in a prepared statement released Monday that the state cannot afford the proposal when Illinois owes $7 billion in overdue bills and has a $100 billion deficit in its employee pension programs. "It´s ironic that Democrats, who have been threatening drastic cuts in education and other state services if the ´temporary´ income tax is allowed to expire, now want to spend

The U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) announced stiff sanctions today against the team doctor, the team coach and the team trainer for cyclist Lance Armstrong, saying that they were all involved in a “conspiracy to commit widespread doping” over many years and with many riders. The decision was rendered by a three-member, independent panel of the American Arbitration Association North American Court of Arbitration for Sport. The full announcement is here. It imposed a 10-year ban on Johan Bruyneel, the team director, and eight-year bans for the doctor, Pedro Celaya, and the trainer, Jose “Pepe” Martí, as the result of their roles in

"What the climate justice movement is demanding is the ultimate abolition of fossil fuels," writes MSNBC´s Chris Hayes in a lengthy new call for action against global warming. To drive home the point, Hayes´ piece, published in The Nation, is titled "The New Abolitionism," and its message is that a way must be found to "convince or coerce" the world´s energy companies and energy-producing nations to give up the multi-trillion dollar business of powering the planet. Once the fossil fuels regime has been destroyed, it will be replaced with -- well, that is the subject for another article. Comparing anti-fossil fuels

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Steve Huber, an affable salesman who is still paying off an unexpected medical bill, was not among the millions of Americans who signed up for health insurance under the Affordable Care Act during the enrollment period that ended March 31. After seeing television ads for Kentucky’s new online insurance marketplace, Mr. Huber, 57, made several attempts to explore the website but found it too complicated. Moreover, his income has dropped in recent years, he said, and he felt certain that he could not afford coverage. So he never priced plans or researched whether he qualified for financial assistance. “I

Fox News’ Brit Hume appeared on John Gibson’s radio show Monday to give his thoughts on the latest news about NBC’s efforts to make Meet The Press work with host David Gregory, as well as the Sunday morning political talk show landscape in general. As a regular guest on Fox News Sunday, Hume said he thought Chris Wallace was the most accomplished of the Sunday morning hosts, but also had some sympathy for Gregory, who he suggested should never have taken the Meet The Press gig in the first place. Hume said he found it “pretty unusual” that NBC would

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

The Citizens Commission on Benghazi, a self-selected group of former top military officers, CIA insiders and think-tankers, declared Tuesday in Washington that a seven-month review of the deadly 2012 terrorist attack has determined that it could have been prevented – if the U.S. hadn´t been helping to arm al-Qaeda militias throughout Libya a year earlier. ´The United States switched sides in the war on terror with what we did in Libya, knowingly facilitating the provision of weapons to known al-Qaeda militias and figures,´ Clare Lopez, a member of the commission and a former CIA officer, told MailOnline.

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Michelle Obama:

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

Public Trust: Sixty-one percent polled say President Obama lies "some of the time" or "most of the time" on matters of national importance. Americans have to ask: Why do we let him get away with it? It´s no surprise that a Fox News poll of 1,012 registered voters last week found immense distrust of a president whose main domestic initiative was based on a lie. The shock is that the same poll found his disapproval level down to its lowest since last fall. Asked, "How often do you think Barack Obama lies to the country on important matters?" 37% replied "most of

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning
