RahmAJamma THIS, Barry!

This will be a "make my day" moment if the (D) critters manage to jam it through.

Fifty-seven percent (57%) of voters say the health care reform plan now working its way through Congress will hurt the U.S. economy.

Two-out-of-three voters (66%) also believe the health care plan proposed by President Obama and congressional Democrats is likely to increase the federal deficit. That’s up six points from late November...

Eighty-one percent (81%) believe it is at least somewhat likely that the health care reform plan will cost more than official estimates. That number includes 66% who say it is very likely that the official projections understate the true cost of the plan.

Seventy-eight percent (78%) also believe it is at least somewhat likely that taxes will have to be raised on the middle class to cover the cost of health care reform. This includes 65% who say middle-class tax hikes are very likely, a six-point increase from late November.

Fifty-nine percent (59%) of voters say cost is the biggest problem with health care. But 54% believe passage of the proposed health care legislation will lead to higher health care costs.

Go ahead. Try ramming it through. The consequences will be significant, perhaps severe, and certainly near-instantaneous.

I can't tell you how encouraged I am by these statistics. It shows the common sense of the American people.

I wish the majority hadn't taken leave of their senses back in November '08, but at least they're paying attention now.

Thanks be to God!

They're not paying anymore attention now than they were then.

You can count on it.
