ABSTRACT
The author offers his opinion on the health care reforms under the administration of U.S. President Barack Obama. He is critical of Obama's directives on health care, which plan to expand insurance coverage while simultaneously lowering health care spending by the government. He suggests that such reform is paradoxical and will be detrimental to society as a whole, eventually lowering take-home pay of citizens, driving up taxes and decreasing the budget for other government programs.
