"The system we have now might work for the powerful and well-connected interests that have run Washington for far too long," ... "I know these steps won't sit well with the special interests and lobbyists who are invested in the old way of doing business, ... "

What a crock! Obama loaded his White House with lobbyists. And yet here he is saying he's going to fight lobbyists?

Grover ... buddy ... can you see the irony?
Can you see why this is so damn funny?

Fair criticism. More info here. A drastically different scenario than big oil in my opinion, but a well founded criticism Jam.

This is a Kennedy initiative by the way. He was holding these talks last year as well. Not Obama driven, and Obama actually disagreed with Hillary on the issue, but we will see where it shakes out. Ted's time is limited.

If he really IS ready to fight - for REAL health care - and against lobbyists -
then first he has to

1. Fire his agricultural chief -and immediately disallow Monsanto to spread its untested GMO crops to unsuspecting consumers - until further testing
2. Get rid of the fluoride that is being poured into our tap water
3. Take a stand on aspartame and high fructose corn syrup
4. Insure that codex does not take away our natural healing herbs and supplements
5. Get rid of big pharm and doctors pay offs from pedaling their nasty medications
6. Investigate what/who is really making us sick - and then conveniently pretending to fix said illness
7. Vaccines - (that don't work) and all of the other "testing" that goes on at the
expense of the pubic

You see -

We don't need health care
We need someone watching and reprimanding the people/corporations who are
intentionally making and distributing the things that are CAUSING us to need health care. We need to find the cancer agents - not fix the cancer.

This is a crock -
Let's get to the real truth
find the real problem -
Stop the real disease.
