Of course what the Associated Press does not even mention in their story is probably the most relevant part: "In general, do you support, oppose or neither support nor oppose the health care reform plans being discussed in Congress? (IF SUPPORT/OPPOSE Is that strongly support/oppose or somewhat support/oppose?" To no surprise that's opposed by 43-41%.
Eleven percent neither support or oppose and 4% "don't know."
Also conveniently left out of their story is the response to whether people should be penalized if they do not buy the government-run health care: Sixty-four percent oppose.
Why do you suppose that was left out?
Also left out was of the respondents, 37% are unemployed or retired
. No wonder they want someone to pick up the tab.
Forty-two percent think the economy will get worse if this scam is shoved down our throats
, while 28% think it will improve. Again, this is left out of the story.
..... Another question left out: "How much of the time do you think you can trust the government in Washington to do what is right – just about always, most of the time, or only some of the time?" A total of 24% said all or most of the time
. And we're going to trust them?
