Text  



I wonder if any lawmaker attending the summit will mention public opinion, as shown in the USA Today/Gallup poll today:

Suppose the two sides do not reach agreement on a bill. Would you strongly favor, favor, oppose or strongly oppose Congress passing a healthcare bill similar to the ones proposed by President Obama and the Democrats in the House and Senate?

42% Favor, 49% Oppose

Would you strongly favor, favor, oppose or strongly oppose the Democrats in the senate using a parliamentary procedure that would allow them to avoid a Republican filibuster and pass their healthcare bill by a simple majority vote?

39% Favor, 52% Oppose
