The people get it

Posted By on Fri, Sep 25, 2009 at 6:46 AM

Noisy teabaggers, special interest lobbyists and the lobbyists' paid shills in the halls of Congress make a fearful noise. The voice of the American people should be louder.

From the new Times/CBS poll out this evening ...

"Would you favor or oppose the government offering everyone a government administered health insurance plan -- something like the Medicare coverage that people 65 and older get -- that would compete with private health insurance plans?"

Favor 65%
Oppose 26%

Despite the 'baggers et. al., support has been increasing.
