Only 1 in 4 Wants Repeal of Obamacare

America, a nation of sheep


“Every nation has the government it deserves.”
So wrote a Frenchman some 200 years ago, Count Joseph Marie Maistre (1763-1821).
Since his time, human nature has not changed. And so, Maistre’s brutal but trenchant observation remains true today.
We Americans often are described as a flighty insular people with short memories and little interest in and knowledge of the rest of the world. How else can one explain how, on the same day that British Prime Minister David Cameron vows to reform the UK’s sclerotic national government-run health care system, a new poll finds that the American people’s opposition to Obamacare has dissolved from 60% being adamantly opposed just last year to an anemic 30% today. 
Yesterday, Jan. 17, Patriot Action Network sounded the alarm that an Associated Press-GfK poll finds “raw feelings” over Obama’s radical “reform” of America’s health care system “have subsided” — even among Republicans. As the AP reports:

Ahead of a vote on repeal in the GOP-led House this week, strong opposition to the law stands at 30 percent, close to the lowest level registered in AP-GfK surveys dating to September 2009. 
The nation is divided over the law, but the strength and intensity of the opposition appear diminished. The law expands coverage to more than 30 million uninsured, and would require, for the first time, that most people in the United States carry health insurance. 
The poll finds that 40 percent of those surveyed said they support the law, while 41 percent oppose it. Just after the November congressional elections, opposition stood at 47 percent and support was 38 percent. 
As for repeal, only about one in four say they want to do away with the law completely. Among Republicans support for repeal has dropped sharply, from 61 percent after the elections to 49 percent now. 

So what can you do? You can:
1. Sign the Citizen Petition to Repeal Obamacare by clicking HERE.

2. Send an e-mail to House Speaker John Boehner, telling him you support the repeal. Although members of Congress have long accepted e-mail from their constituents through web forms and Congress.org, they’ve typically blocked people from outside their districts or states from writing. Now, however, anyone in the country can e-mail Speaker Boehner. After former Speaker Nancy Pelosi passed Boehner the gavel, his office launched a new e-mail account to allow voters to easily contact him. Just send your e-mail to  
SpeakerBoehner@mail.house.gov
3. Contact your own Congresscritter by going here.

  1. thankyou for this,my e-mail is there! also thanks for Speaker Boehner’s e-mail,I need to send e-mails on the “Frauds” eligibility hearing-they should be having to prove without a single doubt to the people,that he is legal. Which we all know he is not. They could save alot of time and money here by unseating him NOW.

     
  2. I have written, emailed, signed petitions until I was blue in the face and still do. I think there are many people who have given up. It isn’t because they are NOT against Obamacare but it is because they have resigned themselves to the fact that no matter what we do, government is just not going to listen nor bend THEIR will to what WE THE PEOPLE want!

     
  3. I cannot believe the poll declaring only 1 in 4 reject obamacare. They are playing with the wording to confuse the survey numbers. I just sent Speaker Boehner an email in support of the repeal. I’ll send an additional one later to our Congressional representative. As the people of truth, the people of facts, the people of faith we must not give up.

     
  4. Done 1 and 2….number 3 is going to be done w/no response. My congresscritter Inslee is diehard lib that never responds to my calls/emails – not once! ugh….

     
  5. hrmfc is right. Polls are a lousy way to gauge what’s really going on. I found myself being polled a few months ago. The person asked, “Which party most represents the following traits? Democrats or Republicans” (It was a Democratic poll.) To which I replied, “Excuse me? Traits are not about parties, they are about the individual.” One of the traits was compassion. To each question I replied, “It’s about the individual not the party.” I told the person on the phone that I knew they had a script they had to follow, but those questions had nothing to do with politics.

     
  6. 1 in 4, mmmm???? Sounds like democratic propaganda!
