If we had a straight up majority rule democracy odds are there wouldn’t be Obamacare*. Or, at least it would be scaled back.

Gallup:

Aug 28 – majority say Obamacare will make healthcare situation worse.

Oct 15 – majority want Obamacare changed/scaled back/repealed.

Oct 18 – majority want Obamacare changed or scaled back. 

I post this simply because it is my experience that most people who like Obamacare also happen to lament that we don’t have a government that functions more like a majority rule democracy. So…be careful what you wish for.

* – if these polls are truly representative of who would be voting. The polls are certainly representative of something. But they might not be representative of the electorate in this hypothetical majority rule democracy.
