42% Of Uninsured Don’t Approve O-Care

From Rasmussen:

Among the Uninsured, 58% Favor President’s Health Care Plan

Sunday, September 20, 2009

Fifty-eight percent (58%) of voters without health insurance favor passage of the health care plan proposed by President Obama and Congressional Democrats. A Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey of 504 uninsured voters found that 35% are opposed.

Those figures include 30% who Strongly Favor the plan and 26% who are Strongly Opposed.

These results were obtained from nightly tracking surveys conducted from September 8-17, a time frame that included the President’s speech and subsequent bounce. Among all voters surveyed during this time frame, 46% favored passage of the health care plan. After the bounce wore off, support for the President’s plan fell to 43%.

Perhaps the most striking thing about the results is how much they mirror the results of those with insurance. Sixty-eight percent (68%) of uninsured Republicans oppose the plan while 88% of Democrats favor it. Those not affiliated with either party are evenly divided.

Forty-eight percent (48%) of voters without health insurance are Democrats and 24% Republican.

Forty-four percent (44%) of the uninsured are politically conservative, 26% moderate, and 27% liberal. Uninsured liberals overwhelmingly support the plan while most uninsured conservatives are opposed.

Thirty-five percent (35%) believe that if the legislation passes, the quality of health care will improve. Thirty-one percent (31%) say it will get worse.

Forty-one percent (41%) of the uninsured believe that passage of the legislation will increase the cost of health care while 26% believe it will cut costs

Of course we are still wondering what this “health care plan proposed by President Obama and Congressional Democrats” is.

Even Mr. Obama says there are five Congressional plans.

And, collectively, they only contain 80% of what he wants in them.

    He won.

    Apparently that means if he wants to stand-on his head and poop up, that’s what the world must must accept, or be “called out”.

    And come to think of it, that’s a pretty accurate picture of his plan for the country.

      We had eight years of Bush and Cheney, but now you get mad!

      You didn’t get mad when the Supreme Court stopped a legal recount and appointed a President.
      You didn’t get mad when Cheney allowed Energy company officials to dictate energy policy.
      You didn’t get mad when a covert CIA operative got ousted.
      You didn’t get mad when the Patriot Act got passed..
      You didn’t get mad when we illegally invaded a country that posed no threat to us.
      You didn’t get mad when we spent over 600 billion(and counting) on said
      illegal war.
      You didn’t get mad when over 10 billion dollars just disappeared in Iraq .
      You didn’t get mad when you found out we were torturing people.
      You didn’t get mad when the government was illegally wiretapping Americans.
      You didn’t get mad when we didn’t catch Bin Laden.
      You didn’t get mad when you saw the horrible conditions at Walter Reed.
      You didn’t get mad when we let a major US city drown.
      You didn’t get mad when we gave a 900 billion tax break to the rich.
      You didn’t get mad when, using reconciliation; a trillion dollars of our tax dollars were redirected to insurance companies for Medicare Advantage which cost over 20 percent more for basically the same services that Medicare provides.
      You didn’t get mad when the deficit hit the trillion dollar mark, and our
      debt hit the thirteen trillion dollar mark.
      You finally got mad when the government decided that people in America
      deserved the right to see a doctor if they are sick. Yes, illegal wars,
      lies, corruption, torture, stealing your tax dollars to make the rich
      richer, are all okay with you,
      but helping other Americans… oh hell no!

      gee mama, you are definitely at risk of becoming addicted to Keith Uberdumpkoff.

      and just so you’ll know, 3 of the 4 DETAILED recounts (the 3 that made some kind of sense) of the 2000 election all showed that Bush was legitimately elected. And the Slimes was involved in that recount.

      Those recounts took over a year to complete. Every ballot was examined.

      enough time wasted on you.

    But don’t take my word for it, in 10 years you will see what a dolt you are. Now go do the planet a favor and shut off your computer to reduce your carbon footprint. And while you are at it, donate some of that bandwidth to the unfortunate Americans who have no access to broadband internet.
