Iraq War More Popular Than Healthcare

Posted: Mar 04, 2010 7:00 AM

To give you an idea of just how unpopular the current healthcare plan is among both Americans and Congress, lets just say there was more support for the Iraq war at the time of its implementation than there is for the current healthcare plan President Obama won’t stop pushing….and it hasn’t even been signed into law yet.

In 2002, the Senate voted 77-23 in favor of attacking Iraq if Saddam Hussein refused to comply with U.N. Resolutions to give up weapons of mass destruction. The House also voted in favor of the same resolution 296-133.

Healthcare narrowly passed the House 220-215 in November of last year, and passed the Senate on Christmas Eve with a 60-39 party line vote, giving the Iraq war 49 more supportive votes than healthcare in the House and 17 more in the Senate.

A Rasmussen Poll showed this week that 44 percent of Americans support the current Democrat healthcare plan, while 52 percent oppose it. In 2002, the Pew Research Center found that 62 percent of Americans supported the end of Saddam Hussein’s governance in Iraq.

Seems if the healthcare bill is this unpopular before being implemented, eight years down the road could be even more ugly.
