President Obama's address to Congress on health insurance reform...

In an address to a joint session of Congress, President Obama explained how health insurance reform will provide more security and stability to those who have health insurance, coverage for those who don’t, and will lower the cost of health care for our families, our businesses, and our government.

"I suffer no illusions that this will be an easy process. It will be hard. But I also know that nearly a century after Teddy Roosevelt first called for reform, the cost of our health care has weighed down our economy and the conscience of our nation long enough. So let there be no doubt: health care reform cannot wait, it must not wait, and it will not wait another year."

– President Barack Obama, February 24, 2009

I think he's on the ball with this one, but I don't see it being easy to get it over the line. Too many American have been too long set in their ways and they don't seem to take to change very easily. It seems they liken it to a communist/nazi conspiracy.

Yeah, they dont like change from the other side, do they?

Too many people there are not getting healthcare cover, and something has to happen.
