    But President Barack Status Quo Obama isn't launching a war on that. In fact he had to be bullied into even allowing single payer advocates to attend his big health care reform planning meeting with the insurance companies.

    Obama was cautious, however. "We've got a very big border with Mexico," he said. "I'm not interested in militarizing the border."
