    again, have you been following the catastrophic collapse of the housing market under president pie-in-the-face?

    foreclosures have exceeded 300,000 a month for 11 straight months with no basement in sight

    Foreclosures exceed 300,000 for 11th straight month | The Money Times

    4.5 million foreclosure filings are expected in 2010

    Housing market's recovery appears at risk - Boston.com

    home sales have hit an ALL TIME low

    Sales of New U.S. Homes Dropped in February to Lowest on Record - Bloomberg.com

    according to ap, "THE OBAMA ADMINSTRATION'S PROGRAM TO PREVENT FORECLOSURES HAS BEEN A DUD"

    and MORE THAN HALF OF BORROWERS WHO RECEIVED MORTGAGE MODIFICATIONS HAVE RE-DEFAULTED WITHIN 9 MONTHS

    Half of U.S. Home Loan Modifications Default Again (Update1) - Bloomberg.com

    Exactly how in your mind do you compute no impact from a bill that changes 1/6th of the economy and is in the minority for support not influence an election in any state right now?

    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.

    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.
    Everyone? Everyone is trying to say that the popularity of the bill was misrepresented? In what respect?

    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.

    Health care reform WAS popular. This health care reform is NOT popular.

    Did you vote for Obama?

    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.
