29. thanks for once again compiling useful information.
One comment though. You say that it's not his job to write legislation. Correct me if I'm wrong, but nothing prevents him from proposing specific legislation to Congress--in effect, drafting a Bill for them. And he is certainly free to specify in advance precisely what a Health Care Reform Bill must contain to avoid his veto. I think he has done a good job outlining some of the principles that are vital to successful health care reform. Should he have done more? That's an open question in my mind.
