With 53% opposed to it, why rush health care reform?

With the recent Rasmussen poll that suggests 53% of Americans are at least somewhat opposed to Congress plans to reform health care as the latest evidence that Americans are skeptical of governments’ plans to take on a greater role in that sector of the economy, it’s curious that President Obama continues to push for health reform before the fall.

Perhaps it’s because Rasmussen also found that, no matter how bad things are, two thirds of Americans believe that Congress can make it worse. With laws on the books that push up health premiums with coverage mandates, community rating systems and state based licensing that restricts interstate competition between insurers, and plenty of countries whose socialized medical systems have led to rationing of their care, who can blame them?
