Bad Goals, Bad Solutions

Jared Rhoads of the Lucidicus Project cuts through the double-speak of the Obama Administration's proposed health care goals.

1) "Bring down skyrocketing costs"
2) "Cover all Americans"
3) "Modernize our system"

5) "Ensure that people aren't discriminated against for pre-existing conditions"
6) "Eliminate fraud, waste, and abuse in government programs"
