"The immediate goal is to make sure there are more people on private insurance plans. I mean, people have access to health care in America," he said. "After all, you just go to an emergency room."Oh sweet Jesus, the man is an idiot and a buffoon. It's bad enough to have the uninformed troglodytes think that "just go to the ER" is a substitute for actual access to health care, but this man ostensibly directs policy. I would say I have higher expectations from the man who inhabits the oval office, but sadly, it would be hard for me to have lower expectations for him.
It is perhaps a bit of unintended honesty, though. I guess it explains 7 years of inaction on the uninsured crisis, doesn't it? If he really believes that all the nation's health needs can be met in our humble departments, what reason is there to fix the system?
