Obama Health Care Speech

As always, Obama rocked the House!  The man can speak, no doubt.  He also showed toughness, memorably staring down the Republicans as he called them on their efforts to mislead America on his positions.  All good.

The Plan itself is rock solid, but only if adopted in the form as presented.  Any tweaks and changes may make the whole thing unworkable.  This is signature too complicated legislation.  But this kind of thing has worked in the past- Medicare, Social security, every tax bill.

Lastly, what I missed (and as a Universal Single Payer Health Care advocate, I was looking for it) was whether the Plan will cover people who have no money and no insurance.  I see all kinds of options for people with jobs and money.  Just did not hear this all too important element.
