Hi all,
The U.S. is the only civilized country in the world without a health care system that does not at least attempt to cover all of its citizens. Barack Obama has been trying to change this. The Republican party has been doing its best to drum up opposition to these reforms, and thousands of people are showing up at protests, many of them with no idea of what they are protesting and that they are the ones who will benefit the most from the reforms. Add to this the health insurance companies doing everything they can to preserve the status quo, to protect their huge profits.
This video takes an interesting angle to all of this.
