Before Obama's Raleigh visit, different viewpoints on health care – Independent Weekly

Before President Obama’s scheduled visit to Broughton High School July 29, two very different conversations about health care were taking place in Raleigh. One, heard last Thursday at the Democratic Party’s state headquarters, focused on how unfair, inefficient and fundamentally screwed-up American health care is—and how desperately reform is needed.

The other, aired Friday at a forum sponsored by the Greater Raleigh Chamber of Commerce, centered on how much worse the system could get if the federal government jumps in and “fixes” it.
