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.
