  • Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Index rating shows that 29% of American voters strongly approve of Obama’s performance as president while 36% strongly disapprove, giving Barack Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of –7, compared to –11 on this day last week, and –16 on this day two weeks ago. His popularity has spiked in approval over the last few weeks.
  • Overall, 49% of voters say they at least somewhat approve of Obama’s performance and 50% disapprove.
  • Just 27% of American voters say the country is generally heading in the right direction.
  • Only 31% believe the bailouts were good for the nation.
Health Care is the hot topic of the week and it is worth mentioning that many Republican officials in Washington have actually gone the distance and refused to participate in the congressional benefit health insurance subsidized by the government, which they are entitled to, and sought out their own like the rest of us. In my opinion, any Congressman or woman who does accept the elite health care that we pay their premiums for is definitively a hypocrite if they voted for ObamaCare. Yet, House Democrats released a letter to Republican congressional leaders demanding to know which of their members would be foregoing their congressional benefit health insurance, given their party’s opposition to the reform overhaul legislation.


I would like to know why exactly democrats feel so entitled to taxpayer-funded, elite benefits when they voted for and so passionately believe in Obama’s health care reform. If you believe so ardently in its merit than you should be the first person in line to sign up for it and nothing more. Democrats have the audacity to request those in Washington who oppose Obamacare to give up their government benefits if they do truly believe it is wrong? No! If you believe it is so right than join our hundreds of millions in the struggles you will never know. If any party should be encouraged to join the ranks of the millions it should be democrats.

Given the manipulative nature of the Democratic House members request, Republican House members have actually taken them up and denied their government health care entitlements and sought out their own plans. This is a really big deal and something to admire as a quality in some of our leaders we have not seen in a very long time. Bobby Schilling (R-IL) and Mike Kelly (R-PA) are two of many who have turned down Barack Obama’s socializing of the American health care system and turned down their own congressional health care plan to show they are equal to their constituents and that they deserve the same treatment.

Here is a quote from the letter issued by democrats to republicans. It is one of the most ridiculous points a pen has ever contradicted the surface of paper with.

1,705.5 miles to go.
