Conservative Poll: ‘Deem and Pass’ Less Unpopular Than Health Care Bill Itself
This poll by the Center for Medicine in the Public Interest Advance in partnership with Pajamas Media doesn’t ask much that hasn’t appeared on other health-care-will-doom-Democrats-style surveys. But there’s one semi-surprise:
Six in ten Americans (60%) agree that a current Democrat proposal to send the Senate health care bill to the president without voting up or down on it is “unfair.”
That would be the “deem and pass” solution Democrats have floated, which Republicans are portraying as an unconstitutional game-ender. And with this wording, it’s unpopular, but less so than the actual elements of the bill.
