A message from Obama (snippet):

"....We also have an unprecedented commitment from health care industry leaders, many of whom opposed health reform in the past. Monday, I met with some of these health care stakeholders, and they pledged to do their part to reduce the health care spending growth rate, saving more than two trillion dollars over the next ten years -- around $2,500 for each American family....."

Well shiver me timbers! That's $250 per year per family, or around $60 per person per year. I.e., pocket change! I mean, WTF! That's real healthcare spending reform?
