There are some interesting opinions in a new Marist poll. See what happens when Frank Luntz isn't crafting the questions?
Greg Sargent reports in WaPo:
"Earlier this month, some on the right got very excited by a Gallup poll finding that a plurality, 46 percent, want the health law repealed, versus only 40 percent who want to keep it in place. That poll, however, only presented two options: Repeal, or let the law stand as is.
Which one of the following comes closest to your opinion about what Congress should do with the 2010 health care law:
Let it stand: 14
Change it so it does more: 35
Change it so it does less: 13
Repeal it completely: 30"
I would like to repeat my humble request that the Republicans use their vast intellectual resources to actually propose an alternative before symbolically passing a two paragraph note which won't see the Senate, much less survive a veto.
