Obama may turn Medicare reform into wider health debate

  1. I thought Obamacare was so great and was going to solve all these healthcare problems. Haven't we already been down this road?

    "President Barack Obama could seek common ground with Republicans in the looming battle over Medicare spending by broadening the debate over entitlement reform to encompass the spiraling healthcare costs that confront a wide range of Americans."

    He wants to have reform that will encompass the spiraling healthcare costs that confront a wide range of Americans?

    Is this supposed to be a joke? Do you mean to tell me that the Affordable Care Act didnt do that?

    Obama may turn Medicare reform into wider health debate

    "President Barack Obama could seek common ground with Republicans in the looming battle over Medicare spending by broadening the debate over entitlement reform to encompass the spiraling healthcare costs that confront a wide range of Americans.

    In recent public remarks the president has identified the U.S. healthcare system's sky-high price tag - by far the highest in the world - as a driving force for Medicare reform.

    The administration is expected to release a report on 2011 national healthcare expenditures on Monday that should further underline well-known trends. In 2010, health spending hovered at almost 18 percent of U.S. gross domestic product.

    Healthcare experts, including former Obama advisers, say the White House appears to be considering ideas for Medicare, the popular health insurance program for the elderly and disabled, that could become models for the overall health landscape."
     
  2. The first goal of socialism is government control of health care. It's a nice benign thing to do and then when it's done, you can shoot/poison your enemies and they can't go to a doctor because you can secretly blacklist them.

    Socialists are lying atheists, wake up and smell the stench...
