Obama’s approval rating plummets, but Harry Reid instists Obamacare is supported by majority of Americans
The Presidents approval rating is at 44 percent now, and the latest CBS News Poll, conducted between March 29 and April 1, found Americans unhappier than ever with Mr. Obama’s handling of health care – and still worried about the state of the economy.
Obama’s poll numbers are at an all time low, dropping 5 points just since March, BEFORE the healthcare bill passed. Even more depressing for the President, 41 percent of Americans now disapprove of the President’s policies. With many of the countries largest companies announcing that the millions of dollars in new taxes they will soon incur to fund Obamacare, and the subsequent announcements that they would be forced to lay of thousands, and in some cases, even hundreds of thousands more Americans, is it any wonder the polls show a majority of Americans still do not support Obamacare?
It’s been obvious for some time that Harry Reid has no problem lying through his teeth, but to claim that a majority of Americans now support Obama’s tax and spend healthcare plan is ridiculous. Perhaps someone should show him the latest CBS poll - just one of many that clearly indicate an even larger majority disapprove of the bill Congress crammed down our throats:
The public is increasingly skeptical of the health care reform bill signed into law last week, a new CBS News poll shows.
More Americans now disapprove of the legislation, and many expect their costs to rise and the quality of their care to worsen; few expect the reforms to help them.
President Obama has continued to tour the country to stump for his new set of reforms. This week he went to Portland, Maine, where he told people it will take more than a week for the benefits of reform to become apparent.
The poll, conducted March 29 through April 1, found that so far the president’s efforts to build up support for the bill appear to be ineffective.
Fifty-three percent of Americans say they disapprove of the new reforms, including 39 percent who say they disapprove strongly. In the days before the bill passed the House, 37 percent said they approved and 48 percent disapproved.
