Author is clueless. He is speaking from an idealist prospective but if this were the case then our government wouldnt be so corrupt, welfare getters would all have jobs, and our insurance wouldnt cost three times as much after Obamacare was instated! Book was truly lacking facts and completely one sided. If American politicians all had to convert to Obamacare I would be pleased.
