In the coming week, Congress will vote on the repeal of Obamacare. But why? Obama has already stated that he would veto it, and with a democrat majority still in the Senate that would likely block it from going further, why would Congress still push through with efforts to repeal it? Simple.
The reason is that it continues to keep it as a debatable topic over the next two years and guarantee it to be a hot topic come election time. That’s it. That is the only reason for their effort. But, it is also what the majority of the people wish for as well. The people want Obamacare to go away all together. They understand that it will hurt the economy, and that it will add to jobless claims. This is why people continue to put pressure on their elected officials.
Just look at these recent Gallup Poll numbers:
And if that’s not enough, look at how those numbers break down into political parties and show that the democratic side whould be worried come election time. The Independents have always been the swing vote, and these numbers are a warning sign for the democrats for 2012.
So, come next week when the repeal of Obamacare is voted on by the 112th Congress, you can bet that the pressure will soon be felt by not only the Senate, but Obama and his veto vote.
