On health care (update)

During the Clinton impeachment imbroglio, Democrats were fond of saying something like this:

"Polls show the American people don't want Clinton impeached, so we should listen to 'em and not impeach him."

Fast forward eleven years and another Washington imbroglio is unfolding before the nation's eyes. This time the subject is health care -- er, health insurance -- reform, and, well, there ain't a lot of Democrats who're eager to listen to what ordinary Americans have to say. Consider:

If the health care plan proposed by President Obama and congressional Democrats passes, 57% of voters nationwide believe it will raise the cost of health care, and 53% believe the quality of care will get worse. That’s part of the reason that just 45% support the plan. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 51% are opposed to it.

Over one-half of Americans disapprove of what President Obama and his cronies in Congress are doing vis-à-vis health care ... and Obama and his cronies couldn't care less.

If I didn't know better, I'd swear that Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, et al. had adopted a Let's-Make-2010-look-like-1994 campaign strategy for next year's elections ... what with their doing the exact fucking opposite of what the American voting public wants.
