News Roundup for 1/17/11

Obama healthcare reform logo
Suddenly a lot more popular than repeal

-Headline of the Day-
"Public support for health care repeal plummets: AP poll."

If you ask 'baggers, they'll tell you "Obamacare" is the worst thing ever! If you ask anyone else, you're going to get a different answer. According to the report, "Only one in four Americans said they support full repeal of the reforms, according to a newly-released Associated Press-GfK poll, and 30 percent strongly opposed the law, the lowest figure since September 2009."

Even 49% of Republicans oppose repeal and, among all voters, 43% believe the law should do more, not less -- by far the largest percentage. Only 26% want it repealed, 19% want to leave it as is, and 10% want to change it so it does less.

Lesson for Republicans: the reason that a finger in the wind is a lousy way to govern is because the wind changes all the damned time. (Raw Story)
