Johnny Dollar clipped this segment from last night’s Sean Hannity show, where pollster and analyst Frank Luntz hosted a focus group that may have endured treatment that would violate the Geneva Convention: watching the entire Obama health-care summit. With the group almost evenly split between Obama and McCain voters, the overwhelming reaction among them was to be underwhelmed. While Republicans got tepid praise for the most part, no one was terribly impressed with the effort made by Democrats yesterday. And if you’re tempted to click away from this seven-minute clip, you’ll miss the reaction that the entire group has to the idea of reconciliation:
People may differ on the approach needed to reform the cost structure in American health care, but they don’t differ much on the notion of cramming down an unpopular, unwieldy bill through a series of parliamentary tricks.
