President Obama addresses the AMA
ON HEALTH SYSTEM REFORM: During the president's speech, many times he called "right now" the "moment" for health system reform. Today's troubled economic and recessionary times, he said, made it important to take on such a large and expensive problem now. He also noted that, unlike past health reform attempts, this time major stakeholders have stepped forward with their own plans. "If we don't fix our health care system, America may go the way of GM; paying more, getting less and going broke."
