Obama seems to be the calm one compared to McCain.

I'm pleased that the health care issue came up.

That was an awesome explanation of what's wrong with McCain's health care plan.

It's unfathomable to me that insurance companies there refuse treatment to people.

Healthcare
Making Healthcare Safe and Affordable

As recently as the 1960s, low-cost health insurance was available to virtually everyone in America - including people with existing medical problems. Doctors made house calls. A hospital stay cost only a few days' pay. Charity hospitals were available to take care of families who could not afford to pay for healthcare.

Since then the federal government has increasingly intervened through Medicare, Medicaid, the HMO Act and tens of thousands of regulations on doctors, hospitals and health-insurance companies.

Today, more than 50 percent of all healthcare dollars are spent by the government.
Health insurance costs are skyrocketing. Government health programs are heading for bankruptcy. Politicians continue to pile on the regulations.

The Libertarian Party knows the only healthcare reforms that will make a real difference are those that draw on the strength of the free market.

The Libertarian Party will work towards the following:

1. Establish Medical Saving Accounts.
Under this program, you could deposit tax-free money into a Medical Savings Account (MSA). Whenever you need the money to pay medical bills, you will be able to withdraw it. For individuals without an MSA, the Libertarian Party will work to make all healthcare expenditures 100 percent tax deductible.

2. Deregulate the healthcare industry.
We should repeal all government policies that increase health costs and decrease the availability of medical services. For example, every state has laws that mandate coverage of specific disabilities and diseases. These laws reduce consumer choice and increase the cost of health insurance. By making insurance more expensive, mandated benefits increase the number of uninsured American workers.

3. Remove barriers to safe, affordable medicines.
We should replace harmful government agencies like the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) with more agile, free-market alternatives. The mission of the FDA is to protect us from unsafe medicines. In fact, the FDA has driven up healthcare costs and deprived millions of Americans of much-needed treatments. For example, during a 10-year delay in approving Propanolol Propranolol (a heart medication for treating angina and hypertension), approximately 100,000 people died who could have been treated with this lifesaving drug. Bureaucratic roadblocks kill sick Americans.

Depends on who you ask. I know a lot of supporters who want him to get angry and attack.

Independents? I don't know!

Obama just said all banks go to Delaware because of the lax laws for credit cards. That screw the public over, he is right.



Hey Obama, guess who carried the legislation for those lax Credit Card laws and the bankruptcy laws that favor the banks and credit card companies that are all located in Delaware?

McCain seems addicted to starting a sentence with/inserting the words "My friends"

From the andrewsullivan.com blog, he liveblogged that the women voter feedback went to the top of the charts in favor of Obama a couple of times during his last health care response.

EDIT from Swampland:

9:59 p.m. - JP - Seriously, on that health-care-as-right thing: the dial-group's women had their dials jammed at the maximum for Obama for nearly his full answer. I think he may have broken the equipment.

Obama has more highs, and they're more sustained. McCain has had some highs, but he's flatlining a lot more, too.
