Obama - "We Are Out of Money"

  1. I understand why he would mix health care into this, but I don't understand how it relates. It seems too difficult to connect. As far as health care, it needs preventative solutions in order to survive, but the economy can't afford that same type of mentality (which it has been for the last few years).
