It has been one year since the abortion-laden Obamacare health care plan was enacted into law by the Congress. President Obama and his allies truly believed the public would forget and grievously underestimated opposition to this measure. Rasmussen Reports released a poll this week which reveals that opposition among likely voters remains strong with 62% favoring repeal of Obamacare and 51% strongly favoring repeal. Only 33% oppose repeal with 24% strongly opposed.
According to Rasmussen, “Support for repeal of the national health care law has reached its highest level since May of last year. The number of voters who believe the plan will increase the cost of care has tied its highest level since the law’s passage last March.”
Democrats are divided, as they were during the 2010 elections, as to whether they should even mention the issue. Congressman Anthony Weiner (D-NY) says “Look, we tried the hiding-under-our-desk strategy on this issue during campaign 2010. Too many candidates who did that lost.” Weiner believes President Obama should make Obamacare “a centerpiece of his re-election campaign and sell voters on its benefits ‘every single day.’”
