Shocker: Public Backs Obama In Birth Control Fight

OB DC400 0209ob G 20090209202427 Shocker: Public Backs Obama In Birth Control Fight

It’s not even close: By a lopsided margin of 66 percent to 26 percent, Americans support President Barack Obama’s proposal to require private health insurance plans to cover the full cost of birth control for women, according to a new CBS/New York Times public opinion poll.

Rephrasing the question to ask specifically about “religiously affiliated employers, such as a hospital or university,” barely moved the needle, to 61 percent to 31 percent.

Those numbers, which come with a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points, are better for Obama than his numbers on foreign policy (50 percent approve, 36 percent disapprove), Afghanistan in particular (51 percent approve, 36 percent disapprove) and are nearly the mirror image of public opinion on his handling of the federal budget deficit, where he loses 32 percent to 59 percent.

  1. I refuse to believe 66% of Americans support a Dictator.

  2. Captain America says:

    Fake polls are being increasingly recognized by Americans as unreliable, and manipulated.
    These are the same polls that rather than report the trends, but rather manipulate the sheep mentality voters to vote like everyone else or give up. These are the same polls that claimed President Ronald Reagan didn't have a chance of winning the 1980 election, but he has a landslide victory, and this has been the ploy instituted most of the time if not all against Conservatives, by the liberal media & fake poll takers.

      So because the majority of America agrees that health insurances should cover the complete cost of birth control, this has to be a manipulated poll? Check any poll you wish and you'll see the same results. This is not a "shocker".
      I take it you don't remember the fight to either force a pharmacy to fill a birth control prescription or return it so you may take it elsewhere to fill.
      In reality, the only ones against insurances covering the cost of birth control are the catholic churches that owns most of the hospitals.
      If I was injured in my home, I would be forced to go to a catholic hospital. They own the closest THREE (3) hospitals in the area. In fact, they OVER PAID for the Osteopathic hospital and then complained about it. They thought they could cry foul and have the price reduced.
      Like it or not, maybe the catholic church should have thought about this before they tried to take over the health care institutions.

  3. While we argue over things like birth control, Obama's pals are restructuring the government at a furious pace. Rules and regulations are being rewritten, treaties are being executed and the nation is crumbling under massive debt. Now, he wants to reduce our military and Defense Dept to minimal levels. If you want a strong free country, VOTE against this Muslin, before we are completely destroyed.
