Response to President Obama's June 29 Press Conference
It’s Healthcare, Stupid. It doesn’t take James Carville to explain what Americans already know, healthcare is bankrupting this country. By not addressing healthcare entitlements in today’s press conference, President Obama failed again to show serious leadership on the national debt. This is what President Obama should have said:
- Medicare is at the heart of the debt explosion that dominates the federal budget outlook.
- Medicare must be reformed. The status quo is dangerous to the fiscal health of the federal government, the U.S. economy, and the nation’s seniors.
