House Speaker Boehner's Tortured Statistics

U.S. House Speaker John Boehner flatly informs us that America oppose Obama care. Now according to the latest CNN poll 59% of Americans oppose it but 41% actually favor it. So it’s false to claim that America as a whole oppose Obamacare. Aren’t those 41% who favor it just as American as the 51% who oppose it? And aren't the stats likely to change one way or another according to wind shifts in the political climate?

As the iconic Argentine short-story writer and poet, Jorge Luis Borges, once noted: “Democracy is the abuse of statistics.”
