The Dems and the public are going in opposite directions!

On one hand, you see Senate Dems cheering their "historic" vote.

On the other hand, you see a public not cheering at all.

This is from Rasmussen:

"At the start of the week, 41% of voters nationwide were in favor of the health care bill, but 55% were opposed.

This is the fifth straight week with support for the legislation between 38% and 41%."

On abortion:

"Fifty-four percent (54%) say taxpayer-funded health insurance should be prohibited from covering abortions, up six points from September."

What happens next?

Either the Dems change public opinion or they will face a very angry public in November.

P.S. Today's WSJ editorial gets it right:

"And it may get worse before it becomes law.

The left has thrown a faux tantrum over the Senate bill, hoping to leverage changes toward even higher costs and taxes as it now goes to House-Senate conference.

Democratic leaders are already saying this won't be the usual conference, with public votes, but will be negotiated by a few barons plus White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel in a backroom.

Whatever changes they make to appease the left will be sprung on everyone else and once again rushed through both houses, a la the Senate bill.

Every Democrat in the Senate cast the deciding vote for this spectacle, which will soon give them ownership of the U.S. health-care system."
