With Republicans now in charge, the U.S. House of Representatives is expected to vote this coming week to repeal the unpopular national health care bill passed by the Democratic-controlled Congress last March. The vote is largely symbolic in the short-term given continuing Democratic control of the Senate and White House, but it’s the opening salvo in the debate that will be center-stage in the 2012 presidential campaign.
For an overview on the topic, Scott Rasmussen has created a video presentation that looks at public opinion on health care reform over time and the impact this vote may have for Americans and politicians alike. To view this video presentation, available exclusively Platinum Service members only, please click here. You will need to be logged in to your Platinum Service account to view it. Please allow 15 minutes for the presentation.
Then, join Scott Rasmussen at 1:00 p.m. Eastern (Tuesday, January 18, 2011) for a live 30-minute question and answer session about the health care law. If you’d like to ask questions during the chat event, you may either ask them live at the time of the chat or e-mail them in advance to firstname.lastname@example.org.
