Health Care Battle Continues
The Hiller Instinct: Health Care Battle Continues
The President and his party hoped Americans would get behind the bill once it passed and learned what was in it, but that's not happening.
According to a poll in USA Today, 65% of adults think the law expands government's role in healthcare too much; 64% believe it will cost the government too much; and 58% say it doesn't cut costs enough.
On the TODAY show, the President acknowledged the money problem.
"We are still going to have adjustments that have to be made to further reduce costs," President Obama said.
But as the president talks about adjustments, the Republicans push for repeal. Scott Brown -- the Senate symbol of Republican resistance -- writes in an op-ed "I am working on legislation that would allow states to opt our of this federal health care bill..."
The Republicans and the Democrats are dug in, and once again, a president is saying "bring it on."
"It is a critical first step in making a healthcare system that works for all Americans. It's not gonna be the only thing," Obama said.
Either the Democrats know something the Republicans don't... or the Republicans know something the Democrats don't.
Both parties can't be right. The one that is will win in November and rule Washington for years. The one that's wrong is committing political suicide.
I’m Andy Hiller, that’s my instinct.
