  1. You should really consider checking a few other websites to verify the content of stuff like this (youtube, forwarded emails, etc.).

    Lord knows, President Obama has not done as well as we would have hoped, and has let us down in some of the promises he made and support he showed during the campaign, don't fall prey to the shenanigans out there of edited video and arranged soundbites without checking the truthiness of the claims and evidence (i.e., is what's presented the truth [no lies], the whole truth [all of the relevant facts], and nothing but the truth [no opinion masquerading as fact]).

    As mediamatters.org clarifies the misrepresentation and hijinks with editing in this video:

    The Video crops Obama comments to suggest employer coverage would be "eliminated" by his plan

    Contrary to the cropped video, Obama did not suggest "employer coverage" would be "eliminate[d]" in 10 to 20 years. Obama stated: "But I don't think we're going to be able to eliminate employer coverage immediately. There's going to be potentially some transition process. I can envision a decade out or 15 years out or 20 years out where we've got a much more portable system" [cropped comments after "20 years"].

    Obama stated during forum that under his plan, employers "still have the option of providing coverage." Following the remarks included in the YouTube video, Obama stated that under that "much more portable system": Employers still have the option of providing coverage, but many people may find that they get better coverage, or at least coverage that gives them more for health care dollars than they spend outside of their employer. And I think we've got to facilitate that and let individuals make that choice to transition out of employer coverage."

    Later in forum, Obama stated that under his plan, pooling options would exist "in addition to the employer based system." Obama stated: "[O]ne thing that I think is important is to recognize that there are a lot of small employers who would like to get health care for their workers but they themselves can't afford it because they don't have access to large enough pools to allow them to save money. That's why I think it's going to be important for us in whatever system that we set up to make sure that in addition to the employer based system that we've got an alternative system that individuals who aren't getting it through the job can access."

  2. Barack obama has got his ideology to benefit the small workers. lets wait and see he will have a good options.
