Some fear this will discourage hospitals from accepting the very sickest of patients in favor of those that will be less expensive to treat.
Obama shoots himself in the foot again. Poor guy. In his new children’s book, Of Thee I Sing,” Obama profiles 13 inspirational Americans. One of them is Chief Sitting Bull. While I respect his right to choose anyone who inspires him, this seems like he’s painting a target on his own forehead. With all this talk about being un-American, he’s certainly given the conservatives the ammunition, beginning with having his first political fete hosted by Bill – blow up America – Ayers. Maybe Bam, Bill, Bull & Biden can all sit down and have a beer together at the White House to work things out!

Well at least he takes recycling very seriously.
This month he’s recycling Tipper.
