Regarding the polls: those polls are reflect people's ignorance of what's in the bill. I guarantee if you polled the individual provisions there would be widespread support.
Spoken like a true Hillary Clinton/Nancy Pelosi clone.
People are ignorant of what's in the bill because the people never were given a chance to read the bill. Even the politicians in Washington were given very limited opportunity to review the bill, let alone dig deep to find out the issues at hand.
Also, if the people object, whether they are ignorant or not, it is the SWORN DUTY of the politicians to follow their desires. I don't elect a politician to coddle me and tell me what's best for me. I elect a politician to reflect MY decisions and MY thoughts with the vote they cast. This is NOT a dictatorship, or an autocracy, where the politicians will do what THEY feel is best, regardless of the will of The People.
This is EXACTLY what is wrong with Washington, and exactly what is wrong with all politicians in America, regardless of party lines. It just so happens that members of the Democratic party are FAR WORSE at turning a blind eye to the people, and doing whatever the Hell they feel they want. The polls taken very much REFLECT that very fact LIAB. And not YOU, or OBAMA or any of those power mongering f*#knuts in Washington can deny that.
So, what IS in that Bill......
