Rep. Markey, Are You Listening?
I only ask because I wonder if you knew how many of your constituents plan to vote against you if you vote for this health care bill.
58 percent of likely voters in a poll conducted in Colorado’s 4th District will likely vote against Congresswoman Betsy Markey if she votes for Barack Obama’s health care takeover bill this week. The poll was commissioned by Americans for Limited Government (ALG).
“These results are hardly surprising,” said ALG President Bill Wilson. “Congresswoman Markey voted against the government takeover of health care in November, and her constituents are watching to see if she will hold the line.”
58 percent voters said they would be less likely to vote for Congresswoman Markey in November if she voted for the bill, which is projected to cost $2.5 trillion over ten years once fully implemented. Only 38 percent would be more likely to vote for her.
Of those, 71 percent of Independent, unaffiliated voters said they would be less likely to vote for Congresswoman Markey if she voted for the bill. Only 24 percent said they would be more likely.
