Obama's Approval Rating will Go Through the Roof if Public Option Passes
Poor poor Rethuglicans. They've kicked and screamed and leveled every charge in the book. He's a socialist! He's a racist! He's a Nazi! He's BLACK!!! But this is not 1994, and from the developments today, it looks like things are finally moving in our direction (even though we're not getting what we really want, and that's single-payer). I'm hoping for Healthcare Reform to be passed by the end of the year (wishful thiking?). Obama's approval numbers will likely go above 60% (which is really high for a sitting President). And the Rethugs and MSM won't know what to do. They did everything they possibly could and a public option still passed. I'm actually hoping for a opt-out option so Dems can make the public option as strong as possible. Having a Dem Govenor in NC means we'd likely get it here. Don't worry about it for those who live in red states. You guys won't go without it for too long once people wake up and realize Obamacare actually works.

2. It will drop like a rock unless about 40% of the U.S. population is eligible to join a public option
5-10% public option but universal private insurance mandate = not only 1-term Obama, but the probable death-knell for the Democratic party.

4. 40%?
Im going to hate it unless 100% of people can opt-in to the exchange. They needed Wyden's Free Choice amendment, or something along those lines.

5. Just a ballpark guess on my part
I agree that anything less than open enrollment stinks.

9. And it will go through the floor if any corporate mandate is included
The party that FORCES people to buy from criminals will pay for it big time in the forseeable future.
