      She is probably the one who thought it was a good idea to have people buy houses they couldn't afford with no money down.

    • "this is not a pricipaled fight" oh ya...she got that right....there are no principals when the goverment decides to get involved and decides it wants to destroy a sector of private industry...except the principal of it running something, with greater costs, more ineffective, and with thosands of new employees they control and then force everyone to pay for it all with higher taxes...and less services and care..lovely

The investment in medical technology has not improved our quality it has only contributed to the rising cost of healthcare.
