Creepy? Yes. True? Well, that's going to take a few hours of debate and still no real conclusion. If you're a logical person, you might think that the doctors are just being practical.

Didn't Obama and Clinton have differing views on universal health care? The difference lies in Obama recognizing why people can't afford health care to begin with.
