His blue pill and red pill comment seemed a bit odd, about using the lower cost pill if it did the same thing.

I didn't realize this was a hot debate topic in health reform, in fact I haven't heard it mentioned at all. I took a look at my own health plan, and if I don't use the generic I am reimbursed a lower % of the cost.

Seems we already had the blue and red pill issue under control.


My overall observation though is that he isn't doing a good job of identifying a specific series of problems that folks would generally agree about, and a summary of his proposed solutions to these specific problems.

Nope, because I'm not a fan in the least.

I listened to it. I was waiting for him to give some sort of justification for changing the existing system.

Still waiting................
