God, Politics and Rock 'n' Roll: Health care debate makes public "sick" of incumbents
Excerpted from this post at God, Politics and Rock 'n' Roll
I'm a political junkie, so I always need to remind myself that the normal working class Americans doesn't pay NEARLY the attention to the political back-and-forth that Tara and I do. ABC News reports that the public opposes President Obama's health care reform plan--even after his speech. Good news for Republicans, right? Nope. Instead, the angry debate is increasing the number of Americans who identify themselves as independents to a record high. Analysts who think the "tea party" movement is a GOP thing--or resort to the now-cliched defense of "racism!"--are ignoring the larger frustration felt by working class citizens.
