Pressing the Prez on Health Care Reform

Just saw the video of Fox News anchor's interview with President Obama.

A quick summary is that the President rightly continued to insist that reform is needed for those who are suffering without it, but failed to adequately address concerns over how ugly the process has become as a result of disagreement over the "kind" of reform being proposed, and failed to address successfully the accounting anomalies that suggest, contrary to his belief, that premiums will rise and health care costs will not be controlled.

But it was entertaining to watch the verbal fisticuffs.  If you don't re-direct a politician they will say, at length, what they want to say, and not answer the questions you ask.

Opinioins are entirely my own.
