I'm going to noodle on this overnight, before rendering any kind of analysis. I don't want to be reactionary...but break it down piece by piece.
I'd like to find the text of the speech...anybody got a source?
There was a lot of well meaning, well intentioned ideas. Getting any of them into legislation is a whole nuther matter. I just wish Obama and his party in the congress could get anywhere near the same page. I thought there were some very ominous remarks that almost precluded this won't be a bipartisan effort. I was really dismayed with the insignificant bone thrown on tort reform.
My overall impression is where the heck is the money coming from to pay for the 30-40 million new insured? Not "one dime" of new spending? We'll get it from doing away with fraud and abuse in the current system?
I'm afraid the president is whistling past the graveyard on the funding.
I thought Axelrod was a total dick. Instead of looking forward to what his boss says can be done....he spews the same old rancid puke about Bush and Rove.
