Steven Hill, Truthout: "Imagine a place where doctors still do house calls. Or where child care is affordable, professional and widely available. Or where all new parents are paid to stay home and care for their newborns and they receive a monthly stipend to pay for diapers, food and other daily needs."

I think that Obama's plan, while not sufficient, is a good start. I'm getting very tired of seeing America in the statistical company of -- or worse yet, behind -- undeveloped countries.
