The Sunday yack fests made much of the fact that Obama's poll numbers are sinking. The conclusion the panelists drew from this fact is that "Obama-care" (please spare me the cutesy, derivative monickers) is in trouble. In other words, the Obama health plan faces the same fate as the ill-fated "Hillary-care" plan, back in the early days of the Clinton administration.
Is theirs the correct conclusion? Or is it wishful thinking on the part of over-paid talkers who are out of touch with the real concerns of everday citizens?
Polling research finds support in the range of 60% for a "single-payer health plan". That view is missing or remains unspoken during the majority of the talk shows.
A single-payer plan has the support of the majority of doctors.
Is it possible that polling questions attempting to take the public's temperature on the Obama plan are oblivious to the possibility that support is shrinking not because people fear government run health care but, rather, they object to Obama's plan because it is not BOLD enough?
