Obama Pollster: US Will Love Obama-care

From The Hill:

Obama pollster: U.S. will like healthcare bill, despite poll numbers

By Walter Alarkon – 03/13/10

President Barack Obama’s pollster said the healthcare bill will win over public support once it becomes law despite polls showing Americans against the plan.

Exactly what difference whether people will like Obama-care in the future? Their opinion is obviously of no value now, when they oppose it.

Why should it matter more when they supposedly will embrace it?

The argument by Joel Benenson, Obama’s lead pollster, rests on a chunk of Americans who now oppose the bill supporting it after it’s passed. Benenson said that group — which is anywhere from a tenth to a third of Americans, according surveys by CNN and Ipsos — is skeptical of the bill because it doesn’t go far enough.

Surely that’s it. People oppose Obama-care because it doesn’t go far enough.

What could be clearer? How could we ever doubt the analysis from this pollster?

"When it comes to health care and insurance, once reform passes, the tangible benefits Americans will realize will trump the fear-mongering rhetoric opponents are stoking today," Benenson wrote in a Washington Post op-ed Saturday

Once Obama-care passes the uninsured will get a new stiff tax. The rates for everyone else’s insurance will go up.

Insurance companies will be forced to cover people who have just bought policies to cover their accidents and diagnosed illnesses. And they will be quickly driven out of business.

Oh, and never mind that we will all have to pay higher taxes immediately for supposed benefits that will not begin for another four years.

It really is to laugh.

    I have no doubt everybody is going to tell the Death Panel they love ObamaCare, in their requests for chemo therapy or a kidney transplant.

    Let me get this straight. We’re going to be gifted with a health care plan written by a committee whose chairman says he doesn’t understand it, passed by a Congress that hasn’t read it but exempts themselves from it, to be signed by a president who also hasn’t read it and who smokes, with funding administered by a treasury chief who didn’t pay his taxes, to be overseen by a surgeon general who is obese, and financed by a country that’s broke.

    What the hell could possibly go wrong?

      MG – you’re all wrong – you forgot “didn’t vote for it.” through a new rule – “deemed approval”.

    From Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joel_Benenson

    Before co-founding Benenson Strategy Group, Benenson had had a bevy of jobs, including newspaper reporting, beer distributing, and a foray into the knife sales industry. Benenson was born on July 24, 1952 in New York City. He grew up in southeast Queens and now lives in New Jersey with his wife, two children, and Bernese Mountain dog, Max. He is interested in American history and describes himself as an “avid Yankees fan.”[4]

    In addition to the Benenson Strategy Group, Benenson founded iModerate, an online market research company.

    The “foray into knife sales” is the guy who does the knife demonstrations at trade shows and says “but wait, there’s more” and does paid-for-TV advertising.

    In other words he’s a schlocky NY salesman who has never had a real job, much like our chameleon-in-chief.

    Yes, this is the guy we need to listen to.
