In spite of our economic problems, Obama’s administration is organized so that he can deal with more than one issue at a time. That’s a good thing.
Although I am a registered Republican, I am beginning to wonder why. In fact, I have been wondering that for a while now.
For example, I am glad to see that under Obama, the concept of a “safety net” is being extended. He’s done it recently by providing for state insurance for previously uninsured children, and is committed it to expanding it to more of the currently uninsured 46 million people. Let’s see how that goes.
It was very interesting to watch part of the Health Care Forum he held with Congressional members and civilian community interested in health care March 5th. I only caught people who were supportive of Obama, and I understand that a group of five Republican senators warned of political difficulties ahead. The good thing is that the discussion is in the open, and that country will not be subjected to an attempted “fait accompli” as Hilary tried. It looks like Obama is working toward gradual reform, which seems to be a better strategy.
Another piece of good news is that next Monday, the 9th of March, Obama will reverse the policy to deny funds for stem cell research. We are making progress.
