Fifty-Seven Percent of Americans Still Favor Repeal of Health Care Deform Law
Am I the only one who finds it interesting that Democrats continue to fallaciously claim that America is a Democracy, yet when they want to ram something down the throats of a renitent public, suddenly we are a “Republic” again and they are doing it for the greater good?

Voters Express Stronger Enthusiasm for Health Care Repeal
Monday, August 29, 2011 – Rasmussen Reports
The number of voters who Strongly Favor repeal of the national health care law ties the highest level reached in several months, as most continue to believe the law will push up health care costs and the federal deficit.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey of Likely U.S. Voters shows that 57% at least somewhat favor repeal of the health care law, including 46% who Strongly Favor repeal. Thirty-seven percent (37%) at least somewhat oppose repeal, with 25% who are Strongly Opposed. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
Overall support for repeal is up two points from last week. The percentage of voters who Strongly Favor repeal ties the record high last reached in July. The last time this finding was higher was in mid-March when 51% Strongly Favored repeal.
Most voters have favored repeal of the measure every week but one since it was passed by Congress nearly 18 months ago. During that time, weekly support for repeal has ranged from 47% to 63%, although it’s generally been in the mid-50s for months.
Just 34% of voters now think the health care law will be good for the country, a finding that has ranged from 31% to 41% since its passage. Fifty-one percent (51%) believe the law will be bad for the country, while only three percent (3%) feel it will have no impact.
Fifty-six percent (56%) of voters think health care costs will go up under the new law, while just 15% expect those costs to go down. Nineteen percent (19%) predict costs will stay about the same. Anywhere from 52% to 61% of voters have expected an increase in health care costs in weekly surveys since the law’s passage.
