WASHINGTON (AP) -- It took only a year to set up Medicare. But if President Barack Obama's health care law survives Supreme Court scrutiny, it will be nearly a decade before all its major pieces are in place....
When President Barack Obama travels to Boston on Wednesday, he'll deliver remarks at Faneuil Hall, the same spot where then-Gov. Mitt Romney (R) signed the nation's most sweeping attempt at health-care reform into law in 2006.
On Thursday, Barack Obama went on Michael Smerconish's radio show to defend his health-care reform effort before a more skeptical audience. Smerconish is a right-wing radio host, but he can conduct a very good interview, as this transcript shows:SMERCONISH: Hi, everybody. Welcome back to the program. I'm Michael Smerconish. What an honor for me to say I'm live at the White House and I'm joined by the President of the United States.
Mr. President, what an honor for me, and thank you, sir, for this privilege, and thank you for coming back to my radio program.
