Graphic – House Dems who voted against health bill

The NYT has a great graphic detailing key numbers about the districts of Democrats who voted against the health bill – like the percentage of uninsured and the voting percentage in the Obama/McCain race. It’s great information and also highlights just how strange Rep. Larry Kissell’s vote against reform actually was.

    The Washington Post had one with Campaign contributions from The Health Insurance Companies. It is hard not to feel they were influenced.

    The latest Gallup survey released on Monday, only 29% say they’d advise their congressman to vote for the health-care bill. This is down from 40% last month. A Rasmussen poll out this week shows that 42% of Americans strongly oppose the bill, while only 25% strongly favor it.

    There is absolutely nothing strange about Kissell’s vote unless you are a complete idiot and can’t comprehend math.

    With an overwhelming majority of Americans demanding serious health reform NOW, it’s seems Kissell, who feels we need to wait for the next president and congress to act, has indeed miscalculated. He has nothing to offer — he’s history.

    Lou, you are delusional. Yes people want reform, but not the kind the Dems have put on the table. Poll after poll after poll show this to be the case.
