What Obama does for healthcare will show whether he has the strength and desire to take on vested interests, to stand for the people against the powerful.Barack Obama
Reich said the next 2-4 weeks will determine the healthcare battle, that the trade associations of BHIP* will be getting out their big guns and Obama must get involved to achieve what he wants.
Obama's stand on healthcare and willingness to fight for a good public option will be a clear indications of his toughness and willingness to put the public interest foremost. Is he able to do this? Will he? To be determined, but Reich has...hope.
Wish us all luck.
