I believe obama is being ambitous with health care.He is taking too big of a risk and is spending too much money.It is not a necessity but something obama wants to "better the country". A lot of people are worried that they are not oing to get the help they need but instead have to pay for large sums of bills and may not get help at all.The issue of healthcare is dividing our country because the us is known for having one of the worst healthcare systems in the world.Having healthcare problems just worsens our economy.
