Oct. 8 (Bloomberg) -- Months of Republican attacks on President Barack Obama’s health-care proposals appear to have hurt the party, according to a Quinnipiac University poll.
The survey found 64 percent of voters disapproving of the way Republicans in Congress are doing their jobs, with 25 percent approving. Also, 53 percent had an unfavorable opinion of the party in general, while 25 percent rated it favorably.
The performance of Democratic lawmakers was disapproved of by 56 percent, with 33 expressing approval. For the party in general, 46 percent expressed disapproval, 38 percent approval.
Asked who they trusted to do a better job on the health- care issue, 47 percent said Obama, 31 percent said the Republicans.
His supporters (the voting majority) want it and so do many others. (Yes, I know *certain CM members* they didn't ask you)

I have said it before and I will say it again, the devil is in the details. I think there is a resounding agreement that there needs to be reform in Health care. We just disagree on how to go about that reform and what it should look like when it's all said and done.
In my opinion, Public Option would do more harm than good and is unsustainable. The dems want to put a 'trigger' in the bill so that public option goes into effect if certain criteria aren't met. Who is in charge of determining if criteria has been met and are those terms set in stone? It's just another way for them to be sneaky and getting what they have been after the whole time. Control. The fact that so many would put their health into the hands of a government that can't even find someone that hasn't cheated on their taxes - to RUN the IRS just solidifies my opinion that citizens aren't getting smarter.
