Public Support Rises for New Health Care Law

Oops! While the right-wing blowhards were scaring themselves silly, the public is slowly beginning to embrace the new health care law.

Here's new polling data, undermining the Chicken Little response of the Republicans and the their hysterical allies:
A new Associated Press-Gfk poll finds public support for President Barack Obama's health care law has risen to its highest point to date. Yet the nation remains divided over the new law, with 45 percent in favor and 42 percent opposed.
Still, that's a significant change from May, when supporters were outnumbered 39 percent to 46 percent. And it's the strongest backing for the overhaul since the AP-Gfk poll began asking in September.

You gents are so cotton-pickin' predictable it's scary. You get one poll running contrary to what the rest of them are saying, and as predictably as the rain, it appears that that's the only poll result you're familiar with.

I predict this will be the trend, though. The Republicans didn't want it passed because they knew it would become popular once it was enacted. And they didn't want the Democrats to get the credit.
