When you take away public options, that is socialism. We even have communist who are saying that Obama is more left than them. I believe that was Chavez of Venezuela. There are some things the government had no business in getting involved in, the free market would be the first one that comes to my mind.
What has Obama done to be rated so badly thus far, then? I'm geuinly curious how you can rate ANY president, Republican or Democrat, when he hasn't even finished a quarter of his term. Most of the legislation enacted won't be shown as effective or ineffective for many months yet.
If healthcare is not overhauled, and by this I do not mean socialized. Then the record numbers of uninsured, which are growing and would grow greater if his economic attempts fail, would have limited to no access to healthcare. People would use the ER as a doctor visit, because ER treatment cannot be refused, thus healtcare would increase ten fold.
Do I need to continue?
Ok there may have been problems with our Health Care system before, Medicaid being the biggest example in my opinion. However it is not nearly as bad as what is being said, this 56 million number is a fabrication that includes people who don't even have a interest in having Medical Insurance or are unqualified such as children and illegals.
