I do not know how Obama feels about he health care industry. Of course he shows concern for everybody in every situation, but when it comes down to his policy does anybody know his stance on Medicare and Medicaid assistance?

Obama had the unique experience of watching his mother die of cancer, and her struggle with insurance companies while doing so.

I think he is as serious as a heart attack when it comes to health care reform!

I hope that he is very serious about reforming the health care industry in this country because it is in desperate need. We are supposed to be one of the richest nations in the worl there should not be a single individual in this country without affordable health care.

Unfortunately, no matter how much Obama may want to reform the system, it will take also the backing of Congress as well as the budget to back it up. I'm not sure we will see too many changes right away as the money is just not there right now to appropriate. Maybe once this economic crisis passes, then I hope to see some positive changes.

I hate to agree with oldbroad but I'm afraid that I have to. The funds are just not available to expand any Medicare coverage at this time. My biggest concern is that they just may cut services if the budget needs to be cut.

As dissappointing as a cut in services would be I wouldn't be surprised to find out that you are right Brandon and Oldbroad. That seems to be how everyone is fixing their overextended budgets these days.

I hope he makes wise decisions he will be in office soon enough and I sure hope he starts off with a bang because he has been built up as a such a "super hero" status that I am starting to wonder if it was all just hype to get elected.
