Democrats are an arrogant and intrusive bunch, as can be seen by this interesting Rassmussen poll:
Democrats continue to be strong supporters of a public option, while Republicans and voters not affiliated with either party oppose it.
If the creation of that public option encourages companies to drop private insurance coverage for their workers as many critics contend it will, opposition among all voters jumps to 58%. Support drops to 28%.
If a company dropped its private coverage and their workers were enrolled in a government-run plan, 61% of GOP voters and a plurality (48%) of unaffiliated voters say that would be bad for the employees.
Democrats by a 46% to 29% margin say it would be good for the workers.
And that is why the Democrats are driving over the cliff. They feel it would be better to confiscate everyone’s health plans and shove them into a government rationed program. Since most people vehemently oppose this, we will see the crash up of the nanny’s (liberals) and the rugged american individuals (everyone else) in November.
