    Obamacare: Disapproval of Obama Health Care Reforms Now Up To 52 Per Cent

    obamainwhitecoat Obamacare Poll Watch: 47 Per Cent of Americans Oppose a Public/Government Option

    It may be over for Obamacare as the President envisions it as his speech tonight before a Joint Session of Congress falls way short.

    Republicans even heckled the President.

    The nastiness of August reached from the nation’s town halls into the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday as President Barack Obama tried to move his health care plan forward.

    South Carolina Republican Rep. Joe Wilson shouted “You lie!” after Obama had talked about illegal immigrants.

    It wasn’t the only interruption during Obama’s speech to a joint session of Congress in the House of Representatives. Earlier, Republicans laughed when Obama acknowledged that there are still significant details to be worked out before a health overhaul can be passed.

    The poll:

    Public disapproval of President Barack Obama’s handling of health care has jumped to 52 percent, according to an Associated Press-GfK poll released hours before he makes his case for overhaul in a prime-time address to Congress.

    With his health revamp moving slowly and unemployment edging ever higher, Obama’s overall approval rating has also suffered a blow. The survey showed that 49 percent now disapprove of how he is handling his job as president, up from 42 percent who disapproved in July.

    The grade people give Obama on health care also has worsened since July, when just 43 percent disapproved of his work on the issue.

    The poll underscores how the president has struggled to win public support to reshape the nation’s $2.5 trillion health care system and to put the brakes on a deep recession.

    Forty-nine percent say they oppose the health overhaul plans being considered by Congress, compared to just 34 percent who favor them.

    People are about evenly split over what lawmakers should do now on health care: About four in 10 say they should keep trying to pass a bill this year while about the same number say they should start over again.

    Some incremental health care reform on pre-existing conditions and portability of private medical insurance coverage MAY happen but a universal government run health care system is NOT in the cards, nor is a Trojan Horse backdoor “Public Option” or “Co-Op”plan.

    If Pelosi and Reid ram Obamacare with a “Public Option” through the U.S. Senate with reconciliation, Obama may very well lose a Democrat majority in the House in 2010.

    Then, the program will be reversed because the House would then refuse to fund it or raise the debt ceiling.

    Will Obama roll the dice?
