The Voice of Reason It is always a good time to do the right thing. That little bit of homespun wisdom is motivating two Republican Representatives to introduce legislation in Congress to repeal Obamcare. Steve King (R-Iowa) and Michele Bachmann (R-Minnesota) have introduced legislation to undo the terrible mistake made over the weekend by the US House. This is great politics as Congressional passage of Socialized medicine is also incredibly unpopular with the American people.
Unpopular? But . . but . . .but the media is showing happy people who no longer need to worry about paying for medical care! True, but that is not the entire story. Per the Washington Examiner;
Â· 59% oppose the Democratsâ€™ health care bill, while only 39% favor it.
Â· 70% say the federal budget deficit will go up under the Democratsâ€™ health care bill; only 12% believe it will go down.
Â· 56% say the bill creates â€œtoo much government involvement in the nation's health care system,â€ 28% say about the right amount, while 16% say not enough.
Â· 62% say they'll pay more for medical care under the Democratsâ€™ health care bill.
Â· 47% say they and their families will be worse off under the Democratsâ€™ health care bill; 33% say things will be about the same, and only 19% think theyâ€™ll be better off.
Â· 45% say seniors on Medicare will be worse off; 34% say things will be about the same, and only 20% think theyâ€™ll be better off.
Obamacare is already unpopular, and will be more unpopular as insurance premiums rise, people are forced to purchase government-mandated insurance and our deficits destroy our AAA credit rating. By introducing legislation to repeal Obamacare, Representatives King and Bachmann are heroes ahead of the curve.
