By a two-to-one margin, 56% to 26%, voters want the president to delay implementation of the individual mandate.
Problem is, few polled really understand Obama-care (me included) and are responding to whatever they learn from the 'news' source' they use.

Both 'parties' need to get their act together and 'modify' the bill until it makes fiscal sense, while at the same time, meeting its objectives; everyone covered, pre-existing condition(s) coverage, no lifetime limits on $ payouts for healthcare (the REAL death panel) etc.

They also need to look at the way it is being 'delivered;' I have serious doubts about the current viability of blanket coverage for employees working 30+ hours. Some serious tweaking needs to take place there.

Uncoupling healthcare coverage from the employers is the way to go, but that's another can of worms.

Lowering healthcare costs needs to be the priority, and that appears to vary from State to State.
