A new national poll shows that 72 percent of U.S. voters oppose any use of public money in the health care reform plan to pay for abortion. That's a 3-to-1 margin against what the U.S. Senate is about to approve.
The independent poll, released today by Quinnipiac University, also shows that Americans "mostly disapprove" of the health plan in general by 53 percent to 36 percent. President Obama doesn't fair much better, with 56 percent of voters saying they disapprove of his handling of health care reform. And yet, the U.S. Senate is preparing to push health care reform through on the morning of Christmas Eve and has even voted to limit debate on the issue. I guess that's as close as they can get to putting their fingers in their ears and singing, "la, la, la, la, la," in order to avoid hearing the truth. The image fits, doesn't it?
