It is no accident that in an interview with the Reno Gazette Journal in January 2008 Obama warned us that we were going to have to make some difficult choices in terms of end of life care.
I firmy believe that Obama provided Congress with his ten point plan for health care and was much more involved in the writing of the initially proposed legislation than we are being led to believe. In doing so Obama is taking cover while allowing Congress to take the punches. Their approval ratings are so low even this cannot hurt them significantly, while trying to preserve Obama’s overall approval rating.
Maybe Jack Klugman should start lobbying for our seniors instead of AARP – he saw this coming in 2007.
