Last week I received several emails from readers expressing their frustration with President Obama. The readers suggested I present these points of view. I have chosen three which could be considered informative.
The first is Steve Wynn’s his view of the reasons President Obama’s economic stimulus has not worked and why the healthcare reform will not work. Mr. Wynn believes President Obama has placed the United States in great danger.
Steve Wynn is a casino resort/real-estate developer who has been credited with spearheading the dramatic resurgence and expansion of the Las Vegas Strip. In 2009, Steve Wynn was the 468th richest man in the world.
The interview is riveting and a must watch.
Norm Green owns and operates approximately 5 million square feet of commercial real estate in the U.S. and Canada.
He is a member of the executive committee of the board for the Edwin L. Cox School of Business at Southern Methodist University and has been active in philanthropic and community service activities for over 30 years.
Norm Green sent this email to friends to his friends who frequently asked him to explain the differences between healthcare in Canada and the United States. The article appeared in Investor’s Business Daily.
The article compares the Canadian healthcare system’s outcomes to our healthcare system’s outcomes.
His comment in the last sentence says it all. It is worthwhile to study each outcome.
“A recent "Investor's Business Daily" article provided very interesting statistics from a survey by the United Nations International Health Organization.”
Percentage of men and women who survived a cancer five years after diagnosis:
Percentage of patients diagnosed with diabetes who received treatment within six months:
Percentage of seniors needing hip replacement who received it within six months:
Percentage referred to a medical specialist who see one within one month:
Number of MRI scanners (a prime diagnostic tool) per million people:
Percentage of seniors (65+), with low income, who say they are in "excellent health":
I don't know about you, but I don't want "Universal Healthcare" comparable to England or Canada. Moreover, it was Sen. Harry Reid who said, "Elderly Americans must learn to accept the inconveniences of old age."
SHIP HIM TO CANADA OR ENGLAND!
Sen Harry Reid is "elderly" himself but be sure to remember his health insurance is different from yours as Congress has their own high-end coverage! He will never have to learn to accept "inconveniences"!!!

It is obvious that frustration over President Obama’s administration is mounting. As President Obama makes policy mistakes, people are worried about the ability of the economy to recover. Every week the unintended consequences of his mistakes increase. More and more people, Republicans, Independent, Libertarians, and Democrats are speaking out against President Obama and his puppets in the congress.
Maybe President Obama will start listening to the will of the majority soon and make a sharp right turn toward the center. His legacy will depend on it.
