The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 45% now favor the health care plan proposed by President Obama and congressional Democrats. Most (52%) remain opposed.
Only 25% Strongly Support the plan while 42% are Strongly Opposed.
Other recent polling shows that 49% would rather see no health care legislation passed this year than see the current bill become law. Two-thirds (66%) say an increase in competition is more likely than increased government regulation to reduce the cost of health care. That’s one reason there is strong support for removing the exemption from anti-trust laws currently enjoyed by insurance companies.

I tend to agree with you. In general, people support health care reform, but the devil is in the details. Its easy to support a general idea, but once the specifics it are put forth, it often looks much different than people expect or want. It certainly seems that this is the case here and the public really doesn't care much for the actual proposal in all of its 2000 page glory.

If by "scare people out of their wits" you mean educate the people on what this behemoth of a health bill really means and what Pelosi and her cohorts have buried in the bill, then you got it, pal.
Implement this health care package and it will ruin this nation financially. But I guess you don't give a damn whether people can eat or not, so long as they all have access to medicine.
