Kaiser Wants Everyone To Accept Obama-Care

From ABC News:

Poll: Most Want Obamacare Opponents to Move On

By Chris Good | July 2, 2012

Now that the Supreme Court has upheld President Obama’s health-reform law, a new poll suggests most people want the law’s opponents to drop their repeal efforts and move on to other problems.

In the latest survey by the Kaiser Family Foundation, 56 percent of respondents said they prefer Obamacare opponents "stop their efforts to block the law and move on to other national problems," while 38 percent said they prefer those opponents "continue trying to block the law from being implemented."

Because Americans just love the idea of the biggest tax increase in the nation’s history. They love the idea of losing their employer provided health insurance. They love the idea of having Medicare gutted. And they can’t wait to get the same kind of wonderful healthcare that the government provides people on Medicaid.

By the way, anyone who has followed the healthcare debate for any time at all knows that the leftwing Kaiser Family Foundation has been one of the most vocal special interests pushing Obama-Care. But if you aren’t already aware of that, a quick visit to their website should bring you up to speed.

Kaiser, a nonprofit, independent foundation that studies health policy and opinions, polled 1,239 adults beginning last Thursday, when the Supreme Court upheld Obama’s health law under Congress’s taxing power.

Predictably, responses broke down on partisan lines, but independents who do not lean toward either party also preferred Obamacare critics drop their repeal push by a margin of 51 percent to 35 percent.

And predictably the poll oversampled everyone but Republicans, who comprised only 22% of the respondents. Meanwhile, Democrats were polled at 32% and so-called Independents at an absurd 46%. (Pdf file.)

In reality, pollsters often use the term Independents to stack the deck for Democrats, who in this case were already given a 10% advantage.

Respondents favored the Supreme Court’s decision to uphold the law by a margin of 47 percent to 43 percent, Kaiser found.

While every other poll shows that Obama-Care is despised, in many cases by a 3 to 1 margin. A June 24th poll from Reuters, claimed that even 73% of Independents oppose Obama-Care.

Republicans, including presumptive presidential nominee Mitt Romney, have campaigned on a plan to repeal the law after November’s election.

While the health law remains unpopular, Kaiser found a bump in support for it after the Supreme Court’s decision

Which, of course, makes no sense. Probably because it is not true. After all, how would having Obama-Care officially declared to be a tax make it more popular? After all, why would having Obama-Care officially declared to be a tax make it more popular?

But Kaiser doesn’t do these polls to get the truth. They do them to push their agenda and the agenda of the Democrat Party. Which, coincidentally, is to try to get us to ‘move on.’

    Most people don’t know what’s going on, just reading the headlines and thinking good for everyone getting universal healthcare, and bad for for those evil employers to try and take it away. A couple of dim bulb liberals I’ve run into are surprised they can’t already just walk into a doctor’s office and be taken care of, no questions asked. It’s also no surprised the worst of it will take place in 2014–into Obama’s planned for second term and pas the mid term elections. All perfectly planned.

    I don’t care what some dead German emperor’s
    family thinks we ought to do. Let them eat schnitzel!

    I’m sure the libs would love for us to forget about it. I’m sure they’d love for us to forget about voting too but that ain’t gonna happen.

    Just more fuel for the fire we’ll use to burn the donkey-eared slacker in the White House.

    “They love the idea of having Medicare gutted.”

    Yes, I do want this one. The rest they can keep. Sorry, noble intent or not, I am sick of entitlements, and I am roundly fed up with people thinking that because the elderly are a powerful voting block it is somehow OK to burden my generation with their entitlement debts while decrying doing the same thing with any other debts. Older folks, sorry, but you all got screwed. Can’t be helped and wasn’t my fault. That money they took from you all your working life? It’s gone. And the money you are now receiving or will receive is my generation’s.

    Sorry, but I doubt you can point to any older people who are living solely on their government entitlements that are enjoying the standard of living that they could if the whole medicare/medicaid, SS, welfare state BS had never been implemented. Granted we can’t “pull the plug on granny” overnight, but massive cuts to these programs will need to be gradually brought forth with the ultimate goal of ending them entirely. Someone has to take it on the chin. I’ll nominate my jacked up generation to be the last ones to get screwed since they are mostly idiots and brought a lot of this on themselves, but my kids shouldn’t be robbed blind to pay for my parents and me.
