Colorado Democrat: The Health-Care Issue Could Fade by November

A jaw-dropping statement from one of the members of Pelosi’s Suicide Squad, Betsy Markey of Colorado:

Markey, 53, said she does not think the vote [for health care] puts her in any greater jeopardy and said the issue could fade by November.

I’m tempted to unleash a John McEnroe-esque “You can not be serious!” tantrum.

Here’s what a survey of 400 likely voters conducted March 16 by Pulse Opinion Research found:

1) Generally speaking, do you strongly favor, somewhat favor, somewhat oppose or strongly

oppose the health care reform plan proposed by President Obama and the congressional

Democrats?

23% Strongly favor

13% Somewhat favor

11% Somewhat oppose

52% Strongly oppose

2% Not sure

Markey is likely to face one of two excellent Republicans: state representative Cory Gardner or state Board of Regents chair Tom Lucero.
