    That is a very funny headline.

  2. Rcik says:

    Nice video. Looked almost exactly like the White House meeting the other day.

  3. Ron Greiner says:

    Obama thought he heard $2 trillion in savings?

    Christina Romer, Obama spokesperson, said that the opportunity for savings in health care is, “Like finding billion dollar bills lying on the ground.”

    Maybe Romer meant million dollar bills.

    This Whitehouse doesn’t have a clue. It’s pathetic.

  4. Juan O. says:


    On Monday, everyone was holding hands with the President. “Let’s all do our part to cut $2 trillion from the growth of health care,” they say.

    Then someone with a calculator realized the implications of letting the government dictate a 15% reduction in the growth of the health care industry — amounting to $2,000 billion.

    By Friday, the kumbaya moment had faded. Many of those organizations are now trying to dial back their public commitment to cost controls, saying that the President had overstated their commitment.

    This is becoming a habit for Barack. This is the second, third, or fourth time that he has been left standing at the alter.

    Maybe someday it will work out for him?.

  6. John R. Graham says:

    Well, that didn’t last long: Only three days after their announcement ( that they would collaborate with the government to reduce the growth of health spending by 1.5% annually over ten years, the leaders of the health-care “industry” have started to backtrack, according to the New York Times. (

    That’s really too bad. When I learned of the announcement, I thought it looked like the best central plan ever: the Soviets had 5-year plans, but we showed them we could do even better with a 10-year plan. Unfortunately, my YouTube video overloaded just before NancyAnn DeParle and Rahm Emmanuel got all the trade association chief executives to hold hands and sing “Kumbaya.”
    I thought our work was done – until 2019, at least.

    Oh well, back to the drawing board.
