Will Obama's health care reform hurt GDP?


It's been said that President Barack Obama leads the league in multi-tasking, but is the president pushing for too much change, too soon?

Perhaps. Although some argue the time is ripe for what political scientists call "nonincremental change," the financial crisis and recession that Obama inherited, combined with the Obama administration's interest in also seeking health care reform, while restructuring the federal budget as well as fighting wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, strike many public policy watchers as an agenda for two terms, not one.
