It Doesn't Look Like Health Care Reform Helped Democrats

The Democrats blew it on healthcare reform. This should have been an easy political gain for them, but the end product was ugly and unwelcome.

I will be surprised, though, if the Republicans, should they return to power, will repleal the legislation. It gives the feds much control over a huge industry, with so many opportunities to cut deals and to reward campaign donors. I just don't see them willingly giving up any power. They will talk about it. But they won't do it.

Rasmussen: Health Care Law
63% Expect Health Care Law To Increase Deficit, 56% Favor Repeal
The number of U.S. voters who expect the recently passed health care bill to increase the federal deficit is at its highest level yet, and most voters continue to favor its repeal.
