I agree... I think Obama has done very well. And for your sake I hope he will implement social healthcare. I really don't understand why so many people in the States are against social healthcare. Most countries in Europe have it and it works very well for most of them. Michael Moore is not lying about the Europeans healthcare when he adresses the subject in "Sicko"I am born in Germany and live in Denmark since 1996. Both countries have social healthcare. I will gladly answer questions if anyone is interested getting information on the subject.
I would be willing to bet money that you're healthy and have never had any major health issues. If I'm wrong, then I'd be willing to bet you don't really have a clue about how socialized medicine would have to be implemented in our country. I'm not talking smack here, but I work in the healthcare industry and I can tell you without a doubt that socialized medicine is not the answer to cure our problems.

This implication is TRUE......because "socialized medicine" = "negative 100" is FALSE.
I'd like you to post why you think socialized medicine is the answer for the healthcare system in the US. I guess that's what I get from your post, that you disagree with the notion that socialized medicine is a bad thing for us.Feel free to explain yourself or post why you think socialized medicine is the answer. I'm very curious.

I dont think we are ready to do socialized medicine properly.....yet.until then, lets focus on more pressing problems. usually we dont have problems bigger than health care but right now we have several.
We won't have true 'socialized medicine' anywhere in the near future. The many, many problems that exist with our current healthcare system won't be solved with socialized medicine. I've said it before, but I don't really think Americans want the government handling a program that would consume 1/7th of our economy, no matter how much they want everything for free."If you think healthcare is expensive now, just wait until it's free."EDIT: I don't think the OP wants this thread to devolve into a healthcare debate. I think you three should feel free to post in the healthcare thread, in this 'Daniels Blog' forum. Just a thought.
