IHOP, Rasmussen on Obamacare

The Heritage Foundation has two new video interviews out. The first is with Scott Womack, a small-business owner from Indiana who runs a chain of IHOP stores and has about 1,000 full-time and part-time employees. Though he already provides healthcare to his management staff, he does not know how he'll be able to afford paying for healthcare for all of his employees; he estimates that it would cost up to 50% more than his company's earnings. One can conclude that many small-business owners may be in similar positions come 2014 if changes are not made to Obamacare or it is not repealed.

The second is with pollster Scott Rasmussen, founder of the Rasmussen public opinion polling company, and the man who once wrote that "Americans don't want to be governed from the left, the right or the center. They want to govern themselves." In this interview, Rasmussen discusses recent polling data in trying to explain and understand why the healthcare issue is so much different than any other political issue in recent memory in that it is lingering, and lingering, and lingering-- and the debate is continuing even down at a grassroots level, one year after the thing was made law. According to his polling, 54% of Americans favored repeal of the healthcare act after it was passed one year ago; today, 53% still favor repeal. This is unusual, and telling of something.
