What the administration needs to do is bypass the greedy insurance profiteers who are the middle men and go between the patient and the care giver. Executives at many of these insurance outfits make more than 400 times what the average worker makes and you call that efficient?
The present system costs us far more many times over than most industrial societies and gives us a product that is substandard measured in increased infant mortality rates, decreased life expectancy and works to block care to more than 40,000,000 of our CITIZENS. Moreover, another 100,000,000 or so are under insured.
So we pay more and get less. When you measure our present horrible system against any other socialized medical system anywhere in the world we don't get the same bang for the buck.
Eugenics has nothing to do with it whatsoever. Why hang on to a broken system
Time to pour out the cool-aide and move on!

The speaker is insane.
The Obama administration has proposed a plan to provide HEALTH INSURANCE for ALL Americans.
There may be cuts in medicare and medicaid but the poor and elderly will still have coverage, through their universal health insurance.
The proposal is to provide HEALTH INSURANCE, not to directly administer health care.
The base of Obama's support is largely made up of the less affluent members of society. Far from neglecting them, he is expanding their benefits.
What on earth would possess anyone to accuse him of practicing eugenics?

Torte reform would be possible if the disciplinary boards of Medical Doctors where not such a complete farce. If people are given no recourse when they feel a Doctor has abused them, there will be more cases of irate patients taking the law into their own hands.
The U.S. Department of Homeland Security launched another unmanned surveillance aircraft over the Canadian border on Monday, this time in the Great Lakes area, to try to stem the flow of drugs, migrants and terrorists into the country, U.S. officials told CBC News.
The U.S. has been using the Predator B drone aircraft to patrol its border with Mexico.

Sure, socialized care must have the goal of lowering costs. Which leads to degraded care, but I doubt our friends up in Canada believe the Government is actually killing them off
“Mr. Obama didn't consult either Feinstein or Sen. John D. Rockefeller, the outgoing chairman, about his unusual choice- something a committee official said should have happened both for protocol and politics. Both Feinstein and Rockefeller also questioned Panetta's lack of intelligence-gathering experience.” – AP Jan. 6, 2009
