    IF he did do that it would just be because he hated cancer drug companies.

    Hardly, he's given in on a lot, way too much for my liking.

    Examples? Just off the top of your head would be fine. I'll check them out. (I say that since you obviously have a strong position. Just wondering what it's based on.)

    Quite the contrary. His legislation, like Bush's legislation, is very protective of "Big Pharma". That's why we pay these utterly ridiculous prices for medication that yoi can buy in other countries for a fraction of the US price and yet Medicare can not negotiate prices.

    And why they won't bother to look into the products big pharma pushes out that cause people to snap.

    Health Care that's the big one, was expecting a single payer system, and then we got something that is far from perfect, and at best will lead to a single payer system eventually. The debt ceiling stuff, the compromises favored heavily for the republicans, just to name a couple.

    What bothers me most about both Obama and Bush is that both had signature moments, clear opportunities where they could have rallied the nation to a new togetherness and tackled some very large long-term problems - neither chose the path to greatness.

    That seems more like an FDA failure than an Obama failure. But the pricing issue - I put that right on the heads of Bush and Obama.

    I dont think anything Obama does could unite the nation. The Republicans are too uncompromising, as a party they cannot compromise on anything.
