Health care reform angers imaginary Americans

On MSNBC's The Daily Rundown this morning, Rep. John Boehner claimed that Americans are "adamantly opposed" to the health care reform bill taking shape in Congress.

I wonder how he reconciles that claim with this graph:

According to Ezra Klein, health care reform is getting more popular, not less.

The Republican's strategy now is to try to convince everyone that Americans are overwhelmingly against health care reform and that Democrats will pay in November if they pass it.  As usual, however, the Republican strategy is based almost entirely on ideology and lies. 

Update.  Your elected Republican representatives aren't alone in perpetuating the fantasy; their propaganda arm is aiding and abetting them.  It appears that everyone got the memo! 


  1. The poll that matters was the one conducted on November 4th 2008. That poll has the solid backing of the citizenry unlike the mystery meat the Teabaggers try to shove down my throat.

  2. Eww!

    There's a lot of throat-ramming talk lately, particularly on Fox "News."

    You make a very good point. I remember Bush II saying back in '04 how he intended to spend the political capital he had earned by winning the election. Democrats ought to show the same kind of chutzpah and remember the majorities that elected them.
