    Libs trying to skew results of FOX News poll

    The Libs have been touting this all day on various web sites dedicated to the "Progressive" agenda. As a result, they are trying to skew the results of this poll on FOX News's website.

    I urge you to vote the way you believe. Take a second and take the poll.

    i really don't like the way they worded it. i don't think its a victory. but i don't think it was just a giant tax package. i think its an attempt at the government taking complete control. the economy is now guaranteed to completely fail. so then they'll take control of something else claiming it will help the economy and people who can't think for themselves will buy into it.

    i seriously can't believe that many people are for it. i've skimmed through a select few pages of comments and any that are for don't really offer any decent argument for it. i would say i saw about 8 comments for it.

    its now 49 against 47 for it 3 unsure.

    This is borderline political. Keep the comments inline, otherwise this will have to be shut down.

    Interesting. Other polls are showing around 67% of Americans are against the healthcare bill, including an MSNBC poll.

    I voted "unsure." I don't agree with the billnormous but our health care system does need some work. I'm not sure it is the total responsibility of our government to fix it.

    online polls are generally useless as they are subject to everything from mobilization of single groups to outright hacking.

    That's OK - Let them think it's a Victory.
    Wait until they find out they are going to get taxed for it right away and nothing at all really kicks in for about 4 years.
    And that the Gov is adding 16,000 New IRS agents right away to enforce compliance & that they can be jailed if they don't pay up.

    That sounds good to me. No deadbeats and freeloaders. Everyone has skin in the game.

    Still 49 v 47

    In spite of the skewed/loaded "No" option

    Yes. It's not perfect, but it's a giant step in the right direction. 47% (301,332 votes)

    Unsure. I agree that the health insurance industry needs reform, but is this the answer? 3% (19,096 votes)

    No. This is just a giant tax package wrapped in 2,700 pages stamped "health care reform." 49% (319,364 votes)

    Other (post a comment) 1% (6,840 votes)

    I'm just one root in a grassroots organization. No one should assume that I speak for the VCDL.

    I am neither an attorney-at-law nor I do play one on television or on the internet. No one should assumes my opinion is legal advice.

    I was just reading that as early as July/10 things like aspirin, Motrin, Tylenol and many other over the counter drugs as well as joint supplements like Controitin, vitamins and supplies such as band-aids, gauze pads, peroxide, Betadine and most over the counter medical supplies is going to get a 40% tax hike.

    People are just gonna flip out over that! Yep, 40%
