If reforming this nations Health care is so important to Obama....

Then WHY hasn't he appointed someone to head Medicare/Medicaid ? Over 6 months into his Presidency, still NO one to lead the agency? Wouldn't that be FIRST priority for a man who said 'the cost of Medicare and Medicaid is “the biggest threat” to the nation’s fiscal future'?

  • Maybe his intentions are to totally wipe out medicaid and medicare to make sure even more people are regulated under Obamacare. It's all about government control.

    Maybe if he appointed those to programs that mattered MORE, it wouldnt be an issue.

  • Because this isn't about healthcare. It's about power. He's not even following his own healthcare plan, which includes tort refOrm. And encouraging competition in the drug market. They just want as many people as possible to be dependent on them so they can stay in power.

  • 'the cost of Medicare and Medicaid is “the biggest threat” to the nation’s fiscal future'


    He said that?  The government health care already in place is "the biggest threat", but he wants to expand the government's involvement in health care.  hmmmm

  • Gotta love those scare tactics and fear mongering. Seems to be right out of the political play-book. Worked for the stimulus, why wouldn't it work now? Oh yeah, because we are broke.
