Good News


As Tevi Troy mentioned mentioned, a Rasmussen poll released yesterday shows Americans opposing Obamacare by the colossal and surprising margin of 18 points: 56 percent to 38 percent.

To put this 18-point gap between Obamacare’s opponents and its supporters into perspective, it’s the same margin by which Ronald Reagan beat Walter Mondale, the same margin by which FDR beat Herbert Hoover, and two and a half times the margin by which Barack Obama beat John McCain. Obamacare appears to be gaining water fast.

While there is a long road ahead and this is no time to become at all overconfident or complacent, it nevertheless appears that Americans who believe in anything remotely resembling our Founding principles of limited government now have increasing evidence of favorable developments for which to be very grateful this Thanksgiving.
