I was also not surprised by this video at all either. It does give a view of what it is like behind the scenes inside the White House though. It showed how the Clinton Administration could not get health care reform to happen. It was shut down. So, that shows how much work the Obama administration had to do to get the Affordable Care Act to be passed. Obama had to gather a very strong team to help him get the health care reform that was needed. I feel that this was the Nation’s first step toward changing the health care system in the way it needs. So many people disagree with this reform though so it is very hard for the administration. The video show how that sometimes those that are willing to help also want something in return.
