Talking Americans now favor Obamacare 50-35% !!!!

the Kaiser foundation/washington post poll now says public opinion has shifted in favor of the Obama health care plan, as i predicted it would. Americans are finally realizing that all the noise from the tea party and the right wing and the health care industry was a big fat lie. Once again, the Obama message is resonating with the American people. Not even Fox news can defeat it.

God bless our courageous president who not only speaks well but takes appropriate action despite corporate liars and their selfish whores in congress and the media.

A link for you: Americans view Democrats’ signature health reform bill more positively now than at any point since it was signed into law, a new poll found Thursday. 50 percent of the public say they view the new healthcare law favorably, according to a Kaiser Family Foundation poll that has been tracking public opinion about the legislation since it became law. 35 percent of adults said they view the law unfavorably, while 14 percent had no opinion. The July numbers mark the strongest support for reform since it reached a low in May, when the Kaiser poll found the public opposed the law 44-41 percent. Support for health reform reaches high in Kaiser poll - The Hill's Blog Briefing Room

This is exactly what the opponents feared. They know government programs for the people once implemented are difficult if not impossible to dismantle. So it's very very important to squash them before they start.

Why the switch? Is it just that people are starting to get what it means, or is there more to it? I will say this. Not seeing bloody red hands and get off my Medicare and Obama's a witch doctor signs every day have made me more of a happy camper; that's for sure.

I still hate the mandatory insurance, that part is pure BS shoehorned in by the insurance industry. I'm praying it gets removed but somehow I doubt it.

I think Obama is going to keep moving till his term is up.
And peeps will be surprised at all the major legislation he will have had passed by then.
And he'll be re-elected comfortably.
There's something about him that 's hard to connect with. Too much gloss. Too little real sense of visceral passion.
But this is just an unfortunate matter of personal style and vibration.
He's a formidable leader, and he will take the U.S. very far down certain paths.
And history's eye will view him very favorably ... as will, short term, the electorate in 2012.

And along the same line I believe this legislation has been filed:
Facing Steep Odds, 128 House Democrats Revive the Public Option
Democrats Aim to Galvanize Progressives and Cut Budget Deficit

"Armed with a new line of attack aimed at soothing deficit fears, Democratic Reps. Lynn Woolsey (Calif.), Jan Schakowsky (Ill.) and Pete Stark (Calif.) last Thursday unveiled a bill that would offer consumers the choice of a “robust” government-run insurance plan alongside the private plans in the law’s exchanges. The Congressional Budget Office projects that the bill, which has gained 128 co-sponsors, will reduce the federal deficit by $68 billion between 2014 and 2020. "

Without it being a mandatory requirement then you run the risk of only the sick seeking coverage which then of course drives up the cost of insurance for all which then means more people may elect to not get coverage then before you know it you're in a death spiral.

I live in a state where it's already mandatory, and it didn't lower costs one bit. In fact they've risen just the same. Without a true public option or really low cost, comprehensive plan all this does is give insurance companies a huge guaranteed customer base, or more money for the government.

Mandated Health Insurance Squeezes Those in the Middle - WSJ.com

Three years after Massachusetts's ambitious universal-coverage law went into effect, two-thirds of its previously 600,000 uninsured residents have coverage, according to state data. It has the lowest rate of uninsured in the country -- about 3% according to a state survey, compared with 15% nationwide. But the remainder -- many younger, male and fairly healthy -- has proved tougher to cover.

Costs to expand insurance coverage in the state are growing rapidly because of higher-than-expected enrollment in free and state-subsidized plans, and rising health-care costs. Critics say the Obama plan could face similar problems, contending it doesn't do enough to control costs."

So the "Public Option" is starting to reemerge, eh?
Can't say that I'm surprised. Many naysayers on HCL back when it passed thought that there wouldn't be any motions to revise or add more to the bill as we went forward. Perhaps this is proof that the game is far from over. Getting the bill as it was signed was a step forward and this could be step number two.

Let's just hope sensible people who want health care reform remember this during the midterms and in 2012.

Seriously... fuck it all.

I do apologize but anything from the WSJ is just not something I can seriously consider.

Regardless, the numbers say the costs went up more than ever with everyone on insurance. People can't afford insane premiums, so they get government help.

That's what will happen nationwide unless we get a real public option.

http://www.boston.com/bostonglobe/ed...yes_its_a_tax/

Whatever it’s called, it hasn’t transformed Massachusetts into an Eden of universal coverage. According to the Department of Revenue, nearly 200,000 state taxpayers remained uninsured at the beginning of 2008. And the individual mandate hasn’t made insurance in the Bay State more affordable: Massachusetts has the highest health insurance premiums in the nation.

Better?
