I supported Hillary Clinton for President because I think having a better health care delivery system is the most important current need in our country. I am supportive of President Obama because he says improving health care delivery is important. Unfortunately he has to deal with the entrenched lobbyists for the for-profit health care industry. Historically hospitals were set up as charitable operations, typically by the churches. No longer can charities operate hospitals, but delivery of health care ought not to be subjugated to the demand for profits for investors and the highly paid administrators. Absolutely the government must assume responsibility for providing health care, and the "free market" should not be permitted to profit from denying care or coverage to sick people. I sincerely hope Pres Obama (and his advisors) will not buckle to the pressure from the lobbyists for the for-profit health care industry.
