Ralph Nader on Obamcare and Obama
Wednesday, Sep. 23, 2009 | Time
Q. What do you think about the current fight over health-care reform?
A. Well, it's going down heavily. Obama's not going to get a public option. By the time the thousand-page monstrosity of complexity and ambiguity gets to his desk, it's going to be a shred of what the majority of doctors, nurses and the people in this country want — which is full Medicare for all.
Q. What's your take on President Obama thus far?
A. Weak. Waffling, wavering, ambiguous and overwhelmingly concessionary.
