Nothing he has done in the last 3 and a half years would lead a rational person to conclude that Obama is a radical.
Obamacare is more than that.
1 It is national.
2 It will expand. Just like SS and Medicare.
It is the framework for nationalized single payer health care.
There is something wrong with Obamacare.
IT DOESN'T ADDRESS THE ******* PROBLEM WITH HEALTHCARE IN THIS COUNTRY, WHICH IS OUT OF CONTROL COSTS.
It just wraps a ton of money and federal bureaucracy around an already bloated, broken system.
You don't "fix" problems by throwing money at it. You fix problems by analyzing them, identifying what's broken, and fixing or streamlining the process.
Obamacare doesn't do that. It's a trillion-plus dollar band-aid.
