well, that guy sounds like a nutcase comparing Obama to Hitler imo. That is just twisted.. Get A GRIP!!!
Obama is just trying to reform the twisted health system in the US.
I bet many here have seen the movie Sicko by Michael Moore. If you haven't, watch it. If you have, watch it again!
The fact is, USA is the only western country who leaves ppl to die if they don't have the correct insurance. Those who have insurance are often likely to be denied care because of some bull# bureaucratic reason the insurance company can find.
In the rest of the western world, like Canada, France, UK and the rest of Europe people don't need any insurance. They just get care and don't have to worry about money. Only extereme republicans would call Canada or UK socialist for providing care for their citizens.
I think Obama should go further than just providing a state insurance, but I sort understand he can not reform the sick twisted profit-only system that exists today in one step.
His plan is a step in the right direction but imo he should introduce a health system like in the rest of the western world directly!

Seems our US government is so tirelessly trying to follow in the footsteps of the Nazi regime that they must have a timeline overlay to get it just right.

maybe i'm wrong nhere, i'm not american and don't know the system inside out.
but isn't refusing patients who need care and leaving them already what happens with the priovate insurance companies?
or if you aren't ensured, doesn't roughly the same thing apply?
