I hate to change the subject around here - but - Obama/Biden are working on healthcare reform.
Advertisements [?]
First of all - Biden has confirmed that the stimulus plan that will be submitted to Congress right after inauguration includes funding for healthcare programs.

Second - Obama/Biden have asked community leaders all over the country to hold get-togethers this weekend to discuss healthcare and poverty and submit a summary to the transition team on how the new administration could help. They have said that they understand that people are busy with the holidays, but this cannot wait.

I know there is alot of things that people are unhappy with, but at the same time, there are great changes happening already.
(just one sampling from one community)
