Can you both "reform" healthcare and unionize American business? 

Democratic Senator Michael Bennett believes that Barack Obama cannot enact both health care "reform" and the Orwellian Employee Free Choice Act. He will, the senator says, have to choose between these two cherished lefty programs.

Done right, health care "reform" can help a lot of people, even if it costs more money and hurts other people. The Employee Free Choice Act, however, would hurt a great many people and help very few. I know which poison I hope he chooses.

Employee Free Choice Act would be easy to reverse. The other impossible.

You got it backwards, so I fixed it for you.

"Done right, health care "reform" can help a lot of people"

Hmmm....The "Done Right" part will certainly make this comment a moot point, but who are the "lot of people" that you refer to?

Are they the mythical 47 million Americans without health care insurance?

The can't be the children....they just got their coverage thru SCHIPS, even the one's that don't need it.

Are they the illegal aliens who will be covered at our expense?

Perhaps the current hard working families who currently have excellent health care, but now will covert to "health care lite".

It will help me! I've been grappling with the decision on when to retire for the past couple of years....that will no longer be a quandry. Myself and a whole lot of other docs....

Given his proposals on the issue, what leads you to believe that healthcare reform will be "Done Right" by this administration?

The question is silly! He can do both! Obama's objective is to destroy the middle class in America. Changing health care to a post office model and turning the operation of small business over to union thugs helps to accomplish Obama's objective.

you know, once Obama and the Democrats inject Government money into Health Care reform, they are going to swoop in and regulate health care salaries and compensation, just like they are trying to do with all of the financial institutions that took Government funds.

That is how they partly plan to make health care more affordable, cutting/regulating salaries, just like is done in the other countries that have 'free' health care.
