Dodge City: House Dems Driven Out Of Town by Unpopular, Job-Killing Agenda
Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and House Democrats are getting out of Dodge today, and really, who can blame them? Double-digit unemployment, red ink as far as the eye can see, and permanent bailouts are not what the American people were promised at the beginning of this year. At a time when Washington Democrats’ job-killing agenda is more unpopular than ever, no relief is in sight:
Out of touch. If there’s one thing the American people want out of health care, it’s lower costs, and Democrats’ job-killing government takeover will actually raise costs and pile more debt on our kids and grandkids.
Out of ideas. Americans are asking “where are the jobs” and all Democrats have to offer is more ineffective government “stimulus” spending paid for by borrowing from China and the Middle East
Out of money. Democrats have raided the federal coffers so fast they need to raise the national debt limit in order to keep their unprecedented spending binge going.
All year long, Republicans have offered better solutions to create jobs and to make Washington do more with less.

“In the poll conducted this month, 51 percent say they oppose the proposed changes to the system; 44 percent approve of them. Two-thirds say the health-care reforms would add to the federal deficit, with two-thirds of those people calling such an increase ‘not worth it.’” (The Washington Post, 12/16/09)
Majority Say Gov’t Takeover of Health Care Will Raise Costs, Increase Deficits. “…[A] new Washington Post-ABC News poll finds the public generally fearful that a revamped system would bring higher costs while worsening the quality of their care. More than half of those polled, 53 percent, see higher costs for themselves if the proposed changes go into effect than if the current system remains intact. About as many (55 percent) say the overall cost of the national health-care system would go up more sharply. Two-thirds say the health-care reforms would add to the federal deficit, with two-thirds of those people calling such an increase ‘not worth it.’” (The Washington Post, 12/16/09)
