You’re announcing your vote on Obamacare at 10:30 this morning.
There is something you may want to consider before you do.
There was one poll taken of constituents in your district about health care. These are the numbers that I’m sure you’ve seen…
- When asked if they support Obama’s health care plan, only 38% of OH-16 voters said yes.
- When asked if they support reconciliation as a tool to pass HCR, those numbers dropped to 28%.
- 77% in OH-16 believe Obamacare will raise their taxes.
- And most importantly when considering the above numbers, 69% of OH-16 voters said how their Congressman votes on the bill will be “very important”.
Charlie Cook rates your district as R+4.
In the year of Obama, 2008, John McCain won your district by two points.
And your opponent, Jim Renacci, already had 200k in the bank and seems to have the means to run one helluva race against you. Already, the NRCC has named your district one of its top targets.
In other words, the odds are already stacked against you. If you vote for Obamacare, you might as well hand over the office keys right now.
