They're just figuring this out now? :lol:

It may just cost them the Senate and the Presidency in 2012

A top Democrat acknowledged Thursday that President Obama’s health care bill hurt his party in 2010. And a new study suggests it cost the Democrats something pretty specific: their House majority.

“It was clearly a liability in the last election in terms of the public’s fear,” House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) said Thursday during a briefing with reporters.

The study, by five professors from institutions across the country, looks at the health care bill alongside other contentious votes in the 111th Congress and determines that, more so than the stimulus or the cap-and-trade energy bill, it cost Democrats seats. In fact, they lost almost exactly the number of seats that decided the majority.

I can remember back when Medicare came into being, kin with enough money to travel the world over thought their ship had came in and this was over 50 years ago. Now there is maybe a 50/50 split on people that think the same way and those that think this and Medicare are a bust to every person they touch.
Well now that fifty percent? Aren't just to sure that all is great and who is responsible? The ones talking the loudest, i e Queen Nancy, and all her handmaidens, are the ones facing the fiddler, and they are all hoping someone will come up with the coin to pay!

Pelosi said they had to pass the bill to see what is in it. Well now that it has been passed, people have seen what's in it and a Majority still feels they don't like it. Obama knows nobody likes it and that is why he and the Dems are not mentioning it during the 2012 election. They hope people have forgot about it and they sure don't want to remind anyone it was their signature bill after what happen in 2010. They do not want a repeat of the historical loses they suffered because they thought they knew better than anyone else to what everyone needed. :roll:

The Republicans need to put out an ad reminding everyone of why they hate the bill. They need to remind people the those that supported Obama and the Healthcare bill are the ones that got waivers exempting them from it. If is so bloody good and is the only way to save the US then why are Obama supporters exempt? :?
