The President calls health insurance reform critical to our nation's long-term economic strength and dispells the outlandish rumors being promoted by those who are defending the status quo.

1. Excellent. I am glad to hear about the general positive impact for our economy as well
I always felt that was often left out of the discussion since all our major industrialized overseas competitors are not burden with healthcare cost which is a huge competitive disadvantage.

I hope that point continues to be raised more.

Thanks for sharing :toast:

2. Listening to him always calms me.
The voice of reason and intelligence, motivation and inspiration.

Thank you, Mr. President!

6. Great statement. Now he needs to say this more loudly and over and over and over.
Good start. I can understand that the White House doesn't think this is necessary. After all, the President has already explained all this a dozen times. But people don't listen.

The Michael Jackson news has now permitted room for other headlines. It's August. The British call this the silly month. The French all leave Paris for holidays. And Americans just may be paying attention. If the President will please focus on health care themes, one aspect each week throughout this month and make lots of appearances, maybe the message will get across to that portion of America that is willing to trust him.

Good luck, Mr. President.

Now if he would just investigate the folks who authorized torture.

7. I would appriciate the meaning of watered down insurance coverage.
Those who have chronic issues and are being denied treatment under the maintance clause, or the one I hate the most-not medically neccessary clause have got to be addressed the same as pre existing conditions are.
