What makes Obama think he can get a National Health Care Plan passed if he is elected, especially one that is as good as the one congress passed for themselves. (The hogs feeding at the trough they fill.)Congress was supposed to pass a NHC plan in 1949 when a family plan only cost $50 or less a month and they decided that the country could not afford it. Now a plan that Obama is talking about will cost in excess of $2,000/month and he wants to include illegals, ain't no way congress will pass it. They will simply improve their own plan this year and pigeon hole the NHCP for another year or two. As you said politicians use words to get elected.
