Despite Media's Spin, Americans Oppose Health Care Plan

Floor Speech

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Madam Speaker, in a recent Washington Post op-ed, here is what two Democratic pollsters had to say about the media's spin on the administration's health care proposal:

``Nothing had been more disconcerting than to watch Democratic politicians and their media supporters deceive themselves into believing that the public favors the Democrats' current health care plan.

``A solid majority of Americans opposes the massive health reform plan. Many more Americans believe the legislation will worsen their health care, cost them more personally, and add significantly to the national deficit.

``Never in our experience as pollsters can we recall such self-deluding misconstruction of survey data.''

Madam Speaker, despite the media spin, the American people are sending a clear message about health care: Congress should start over and get it right.
