Kibbe relied on the findings of a CNN/Opinion Research poll released earlier this week that found Americans opposed the new law 50 to 43 percent (with 7 percent undecided). On closer inspection though, as U.S. News & World Report’s Robert Schlesinger reports, the details of the poll results show that most Americans either support the law or oppose it because it is “not liberal enough”:
Do you oppose that legislation because you think its approach toward health care is too liberal, or because you think it is not liberal enough?”his idiotic remark that tax cuts for the rich is “[t]his notion that somehow we are willing to compromise too much reminds me of the debate that we had during health care. This is the public option debate all over again.”
Oppose, too liberal 37%
Oppose, not liberal enough 13%
No opinion 7%
Go for it, Mr. President. Who knows, you might learn something.
