Obama wants health care for all in six years...

Well, it didn't take long for the beginnings of the presidential promises to start out there as far as what a candidate would like to see happen. Barack Obama is calling for all Americans to have Universal Health Care in six years:

Obama said while plans are offered in every campaign season with "much fanfare and promise," they collapse under the weight of Washington politics, leaving citizens to struggle with the skyrocketing costs.

He said it's wrong that 46 million in this country are uninsured when the country spends more than any one else on health care. He said Americans pay $15 billion in taxes to help care for the uninsured.

"We can't afford another disappointing charade in 2008, 2009 and 2010," Obama said. "It's not only tiresome, it's wrong."

No details where included as to how his idea is any different than the past "fanfare and promise", but maybe that will come later, after the "fanfare and promise" part of the campaign season has diminished...

I can see this happening..., in the 24th century.

(In the 24th century, they don't have/use money either.)
