In Littleton, Mass., Alex Olsen, a professor at the University of Massachusetts, said he's fed up with Mr. Obama and the Democratic majority. He voiced strong discontent with efforts to push the health bill through the Senate. "They're just trying to ram things down our throats," said Mr. Olsen, 65, an independent. "People are just so sick and tired of being treated like second-class citizens."
