Poll: Should Democrats Be Focusing On Health Care?

More

Gallup reports this morning that its poll respondents think President Obama and congressional Democrats should focus on something else besides health care: 46 percent said "health care is important but there are other problems that Congress and the president should address first," while 32 percent said health care should be the top priority, and 19 percent said health care should not be a top priority.

Democrats are faced with several choices on health care--e.g., whether to continue whipping House moderates and progressives to support the Senate health care bill, whether to step back and pass a stripped-down bill in the Senate, or to use budget reconciliation rules--but while that's getting sorted out, they are, in fact, doing other things: the administration rolled out its new plan for Wall Street yesterday, addressing one of voters' top concerns other than health care reform.
