Okay, America, we've got ourselves a new president who has made some bold plans for reforming health care!
While Obama has insisted that "there is only one president at a time," people are anxious for healthcare reform to happen as soon as possible, according to two articles in the Los Angeles Times. Advocacy groups are urging Obama to prioritize reform within his first 100 days in office. And Congress, worried that the financial meltdown will delay Obama's health care reform plans, has already started acting on their own.
According to the Washington Post, Obama's vision may collide with the reality. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel discusses the challenges Obama faces in reforming health care.
