Survey says! Stan tackles polls

Support for the repeal of the new National Healthcare Bill is still rising. The most recent Rasmussen Poll tells us that 54 percent of American voters want to see Obamacare repealed compared to 39 percent who do not. 22 percent of America believes the quality of healthcare in America will get better under the new plan. 52 percent say that it will get worse. Do you think these figures will affect the election this November? In the words of Sarah Palin, you betcha!

The very same poll asked if repealing Obamacare would be good for the economy. While only 33 percent said NO a great big 47 percent shouted YES!

According to Gallup, registered voters are currently divided on whether President Obama deserves a second term. 46 percent say he should be re-elected. 50 percent say he should not.

Should “IN GOD WE TRUST” be removed from our currency?11 percent of MSNBC viewers say yes! It’s a violation of church and state. A whopping 89 percent shout NO! The motto is of historic and patriotic significance. All those that aren’t happy with our cash can donate all they have to a worthwhile charity. And, by the way, I DO watch MSNBC along with CNN, HLN and, of course, FOX.

Sixty-four percent of likely voters in Arizona are in favor of the new legislation intended to crack down on illegal immigrants. Only 30 percent are not. Nationally, with only 39 percent opposed, 51 percent favor the new law, and if my president is so concerned about the civil rights of the illegals, let him do something to stop them from coming in. Finishing the wall and placing troops at the border will help. Nine of 10 Americans say that it is important to them for the federal government to secure the border against illegal immigration now. Sixty-one percent of Americans told Mr. Gallup that they are very concerned about illegal immigrants putting an unfair burden on U.S. schools, hospitals and government services. English translation: 3 of every 5 are sick and tired of their taxes paying for … yada, yada, yada.

Great News — the government announced that 290,000 new jobs were created during the month of April. Sixty-six percent of likely voters believe that, instead of government spending, a better way to create more new jobs is by cutting taxes. That percentage seems to climb a bit higher every time there’s a new poll. Ya’ hear that Barack?

Women in America own 40 percent of all the small businesses in the nation but only eight percent of high tech start-ups funded by venture capital. Is that because the old boy network still doesn’t trust them?

Americans spent $300 billion, that’s billion with a capital “B” dollars last year on prescriptions — an increase of 5.1 percent over the year before. Generic medications which account for three-quarters of all prescriptions dispensed last year rose 5.9 percent. Oy, vey. All these numbers are giving me a headache. I am StanGershbein@Bellsouth.net asking, “Does anyone here have an aspirin?”
