Socialism always hurts the economy.
Sorry the polls are only right when they support the propaganda.
Hiring 16,000 IRS agents to harass us isn’t cost-free.
Sluicing our money through Washington DC causes half to disappear to corruption and looters.
People who think the government can or will save money are totally insane or simply haven’t lived long enough.
Combine these results with today's jobs' report, and there are more than a few reasons for the rats to say, "woe is me."
These results are consistent with other recent polls about the Affordable Care Act(ACA) which show that pluralities or majorities disapprove of the ACA. Likewise, similar numbers think the economy and jobs should be the top priorities. Polls of national adults are the cheapest convenience samples, and have the greatest variance with actual results on Election Day, as opposed to registered voters or likely voters, the latter having the best agreement.
Recent polls that show Obama being tied with or leading Romney are suspect for at least a few reasons. Republican turnout on Election Day has been consistently better than the rats' turnout. There's been at least anecdotal evidence on this forum that conservatives decline to be polled, so that they are regularly undersampled. Lastly, the honesty of the respondents can be called into question because of the fear that opposition to Obama's policies will be misconstrued as evidence of racism.

Mandatory always means price goes up.”

We need to regain our freedom! We must find a way somehow!
Everyone tries to live at the expense of everyone else and society collapses. See Bastiat.
The economy is the #1 issue, but repeal of Obamacare is essential is we want the economy resurrected. The more voters get this message, the easier it will be to elect a slate of candidates committed to repeal and replace. Absent that, it’s game over for the health care system, which will quickly become as ossified and ineffective as our educational system.
Obamacare growing the government by orders of magnitude.
