Regarding Obama sees potential for healthcare gains:
If President Barack Obama truly believes that healthcare will help our country fiscally, then he seriously needs to consider rejecting any bill that tries to eliminate free enterprise, i.e., the State Childrens Health Insurance Program bill. Physician-owned hospitals employ hundreds of individuals and therefore the creation of stimulus to the economy from these employees who in-turn purchase items from other businesses in the surrounding communities.
Closing or trying to limit any type of medical clinic/specialty hospital only hinders the economy more and would truly show the lack of foresight of our legislative body but, more so our newly sworn in president.
