Would appear so
More than a million spectators gathered before the Capitol on a frosty January afternoon to witness the inauguration of Barack Obama, who promised in his campaign to change Washington’s mercenary culture of lobbyists, special interest influence and backroom deals. But within a few months of being sworn in, the President and his top aides were sitting down with leaders from the pharmaceutical industry to hash out a deal that they thought would make health care reform possible.

Many speak of Tort reform as 1 possibleHC reform solution. Why do you think a group of lawyers/politicians refuse to entertain and explore THAT option?

ASA- Agreed. This is why the constant droning about THIS Pres and THIS admin falls on my deaf ears. IT'S A SYSTEM FAILURE. A SYSTEM THAT NEEDS TO BE REFORMED. HOW COME A THIRD PARTY CANDIDATE HAS NO CHANCE OF BEING ELECTED AS POTUS? Why are ppl ok with the limited (and at times corrupt) options???? I think the myopic focus on OBAMA detracts from more important and far reaching problem.
