Forty-nine percent (49%) of U.S. voters now at least somewhat oppose the health care reform plan proposed by President Obama and congressional Democrats, while 46% at least somewhat favor it, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey.
This marks the first time that more voters lean against the plan than support it. Just two weeks ago, 50% were for the reform plan, and 45% were opposed.
- Strongly favor - 22%
- Somewhat favor - 24%
- Somewhat oppose - 11%
- Strongly oppose - 38%
- Not sure - 5%
The question has always been: Who will pay for health care reform?
And, the conservative Democrats in the House and particularly the Senate realize that whatever plan comes out, they will be saddled with complete responsibility - just like with the Economic Stimulus Bill failure. Any economic dislocation will be squarely on the Democrat's back.
I don't look for any meaningful Obamacare health care reform legislation being passed this session of Congress, if ever.
