The Obama Healthcare Bill, a piece of legislation that marked another historic moment in Obama’s legacy after his election as the First Black President of the US. A piece of legislation, which according to Obama, the American people wanted. But it seems that even before the bill was passed there was a lot of opposition over this bill, opposition the Democrats chose to ignore and passed the bill anyways which Obama then signed. Strange considering Obama promised to do what the people wanted.
Now it seems not only were a lot of people opposed to this bill but now a big majority are in favor of repealing the bill, according to the Rasmussen Report:
Monday, May 24, 2010
Support for repeal of the new national health care plan has jumped to its highest level ever. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 63% of U.S. voters now favor repeal of the plan passed by congressional Democrats and signed into law by President Obama in March. Link
So, since this is the will of the majority, will Obama chose to do the will of the people, or will he continue to do his will? Hope & Change seems so far away these days as Obama’s approval ratings continue to drop and Republicans continue to chip away at the Democrats control of the Gov’t.
Keep fighting the good fight people. Continue to show this Gov’t that it’s the will of the people that gets done, not the will of the President and his submissive Congress and Senate.
