Is ObamaCare Doomed for Failure?

There are increasing signs that ObamaCare is doomed for failure.  The left is getting more and more desperate, as they try to counter the growing insurgency that is rising in this country among Conservatives, Independents, and normal, conservative/moderate Democrats.  People don’t want their health care touched, and they are making their voices heard.  People oppose the plan, by a margin of 53% to 42%, according to the latest Rasmussen Poll.

It is also interesting to note that the State-run media focus on trying to demagogue the protesters is backfiring.  According to a recent Gallup Poll (yes, I know it’s Gallup, so treat it as suspect, but it is worth pointing out), among Independents, 34% say that the coverage of the protests has made them more sympathetic to the protester’s views on health care, while only 21% say that it has made them less sympathetic.  It is no wonder that Team Obama is pulling out all the stops, trying to lie and cheat their way to bringing health care reform back on track.  From trotting out fake doctors in support of ObamaCare, to saying that doctors will amputate someone’s foot for money (the AMA is rightly outraged about this one) to posing as protesters holding Obama-Hitler signs, in an attempt to discredit the protesters.

The left is becoming unhinged.  They are desperately trying to save the President’s agenda, and Obama’s political capital is waning.  With Obama’s poll numbers below 50%, it will be tough to convince Democrats in Conservative states and districts to go along with ObamaCare after the August recess.  This is why Obama was in such a rush to pass legislation before August.  As more people learn about ObamaCare, the number of people opposed rises.  America continues to be a right-of-center nation, and this is not what most people thought was meant by Hopey-Change.
