CNN Poll: 59% Oppose the Health Care Legislation

In case you were wondering, CNN polled Americans over the weekend to gauge their approval of the health care bill.

20. As you may know, the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate are trying to pass final legislation that would make major changes in the country’s health care system. Based on what you have read or heard about that legislation, do you generally favor it or generally oppose it?

Mar 19-21
Favor 39%
Oppose 59%
No opinion 2%

21. (IF OPPOSE) Do you oppose that legislation because you think its approach toward health care is too liberal, or because you think it is not liberal enough?

Mar 19-21
Favor (from Question 20) 39%
Oppose, too liberal 43%
Oppose, not liberal enough 13%
No opinion 5%

What we have is a government that increasingly ignores the wishes of its people to pass corporatist "reform" legislation, because it's easier than passing real reform.
