Deal with it.
Amidst all the blue pipe smoke being thrown up by Republicans, AP reports on a new poll that reminds us who it is, exactly, that President Barack Obama is fighting for:
A new poll, meanwhile, showed that large numbers of people are worried about whether they will have future health coverage, with nearly one in four concerned that family medical bills will drive them into bankruptcy.
In other words, average middle class Americans. And here’s what the new health care program is going to look like:
The $1.5 trillion, 10-year House bill would, for the first time, require all individuals to have health insurance and all employers to provide it. The poor would get subsidies to buy insurance and insurers would be barred from denying coverage based on pre-existing conditions.
Republicans are crying wolf, but this is going to happen. It’s one of the key things Obama came to the presidency to do.
