Happy Hour News
Guys, remember back in the day, when the polling showed us that The Affordable Care Act was wildly popular with Wee The Peeples, but the damn Kenyan Usurper’s Obamacare was the work of the Debbil?
It’s happening again with President Handsome Joe Biden:
“NEW YORK (Reuters) – President Joe Biden’s $2 trillion infrastructure plan is loaded with road repairs, internet upgrades and other initiatives that are widely popular on their own, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll, but U.S. public support declines when the initiatives are packed into a Democratic bill and sold as a Biden-backed plan.
“…While most Americans, including many Republicans, like the ideas in the plan in general, they are less likely to support legislation written by Democrats to make those ideas a reality, the poll shows….
“The poll found:
– 79% of Americans supported a government overhaul of American roadways, railroads, bridges, and ports.
– 71% supported a plan to extend high-speed internet to all Americans.
– 68% supported an initiative to replace every lead pipe in the country.
– 66% supported tax credits for renewable energy.
“Americans also were largely supportive of ways that Biden has proposed to pay for his massive infrastructure bill. According to the poll, 64% of U.S adults supported a tax hike on corporations and large businesses, and 56% supported ending tax breaks for the fossil fuel industry.”
So what’s the problem?
Only 45% of Americans said they would support a jobs and infrastructure plan that was “recently released by the Biden administration.” Another 27% said they were opposed and the remaining 28% said they were not sure.
The decline in support appears to be mostly a partisan reaction: only about two in 10 Republicans and three in 10 independents said they supported a Biden infrastructure plan, compared with seven out of 10 Democrats.
They are all Khans: “To the last I grapple with thee. From hell’s heart I stab at thee. For hate’s sake, I spit my last breath at thee.”
Good lord, we are a nation of dopes.
