Can’t decide how you feel about Obama’s Health Care Plan?

obamaLast week’s Presidential Address left many Americans trying to figure out whether they are for, against, or completely apathetic about Obama’s proposed Health Care Plan.  Since then, the media has tried to keep up with the funding proposals and counterpoints to the issues, but it’s a lot to keep up with!  So, while the clock ticks and the deadline for a decision rushes closer, Rentschler Library has some resources that may shed some light on the issues.
