I Guess the American People Do Want It

This, from Daily Kos, is hilarious.

A Republican congressman in Texas conducted a poll on health care legislation. In the question, he described the Dems' plan as "a $1.5 trillion plan that will raise taxes, ration care and let government bureaucrats make decisions that should be made by you and your doctors."

After this description, the poll results? 72% for the plan as described, 27% against.

Democrats in the Senate- wake up. Americans want the public option, even in Texas. They want it a lot. Six months of vicious campaigning against this plan by Republicans and insurance companies have only succeeded in convincing a few people to be against the public option, beyond the brain-dead Republican base.

This should be the easiest yes vote you ever cast. Do it and be heroes.

Every polling agency is reporting that Americans don't want Obamacare. period.

But you trust some republican senator's unscientific poll?

Derek,

You know very well that that is not true. You know how I feel about people who come on here and post talking points.

Rasmussen, Gallup, CNN, and your beloved MSNBC.

Hey look! Proof! What a novel concept.
