CBS Poll: Most, 62 percent, Want GOP to Keep Fighting on Health Bill

CBS Poll: Most Want GOP to Keep Fighting on Health Bill


A CBS News poll released Wednesday finds that nearly two in three Americans want Republicans in Congress to continue to challenge parts of the health care reform bill.

The Senate version of the legislation was passed by the House Sunday night, and President Obama signed it into law on Tuesday. The House also passed a separate reconciliation bill, which cannot be filibustered, that is now being debated in the Senate. That bill would make changes to the bill already signed into law.

Senate Republicans are now challenging whether the bill is truly a budget reconciliation bill (which is what makes it filibuster-proof) and inserting amendments designed to slow down passage. Republican attorneys general are also planning to challenge the constitutionality of the law.

The poll finds that 62 percent want Congressional Republicans to keep challenging the bill, while 33 percent say they should not do so. Nearly nine in ten Republicans and two in three independents want the GOP to keep challenging. Even 41 percent of Democrats support continued challenges.


Wild Thing's comment......

GOOD and it should be even more of a percentage if people care about our country. I think the numbers are a lot higher in fact. Not everyone is polled, I never have been. Plus if it is online, not everyone, even today, has a computer. Everywhere we go people can be heard talking how they hate this. Grocery store, book store, all over the place, people talking to each other how concerned they are.

Obama and his ilk have declared war on the Constitution.

I agree those are sketchy numbers. I think when everybody's taxes go up because of this 'Commie care', that number will change dramatically.

What's significant though, is the number of democrats against it. Thats a full 46%. This Soutpiel Puppet is going to be up against it. His base is evaporating and he's out of political capital to spend convincing that huge margin to 'suck it up'. Looks like all the democrats haven't drunk the Kool-ade.

Challenge in the courts and at the polls and if all else fails in the streets. We have a choice to either fight to remain a free people or submit. I will not go peaceably into the night...

If so many Democrats are against obamacare, why did they vote Democrat? Why did the "pie in the sky" Dems take so many seats in Congress last election? Why did they vote for obama is so many primaries? Something doesn't make sense here. I think this is a skewed poll. I sure hate obamacare and obama. But the majority of voters voted for him. Now they are changing their minds? Why? He is doing as he said he would do. If this many liberal voters dislike his healthcare, just wait until his tax bill comes due.
