"He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
Explain that to us. Then explain how Massachusetts got a republican senator
And while you are doing that...
Sixty-two percent (62%) are angry at the current policies of the federal government, with 42% who are very angry. While this is a sizable number, it’s slightly lower than the findings nationally.
Since health care has been the dominant topic this entire year, its in these numbers.

Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.
[quote=LaMidRighter;1058642769]Everyone? Everyone is trying to say that the popularity of the bill was misrepresented? In what respect?Well, yes and no. The point is that everyone is trying to say that the popularity of this bill was misrepresented like it actually matters in the long run, the fact is it's not. And no I didn't vote for Obama, I barely voted for McCain and not willingly, I didn't want a rubber stamp administration and well, my side lost.
The fact that you didn't vote for Obama is significant. Those who did, knew the reasons they were doing so, health care reform was chief among them. I spent several weekends knocking on doors for Obama and it was very prominent in the literature I was given in order to answer any questions I encountered.
Further, based on what I've seen posted here, many members who voted against Obama, must have done so from a broader ideological difference rather than the details of his platform. Perhaps they were focused on specific issues of greater interest to them?
It's surprising to me that conservatives can say that health care didn't seem important during the election. It was always going to be at the forefront of issues Obama intended to confront upon his entry into the White House.
i like some guns.

This health care plan was not popular with Republicans, though it has it's roots in Romney's plan, The Heritage Foundation, Rep. Chuck Grassley's plan in 1993 (the individual mandate).
There is some unpopularity amongst Democrats because they wanted a single payer system.
