Fidel Castro: Passage of Obama’s Health Care Plan Is “A Miracle”

As President Barack Obama embarks on a high profile campaign  to bolster public opinion of his health care plan, there is one man who is already convinced that Obamacare is the right move for America – Fidel Castro, the Cuban revolutionary leader and first secretary of the Cuban Communist Party.
According to an Associated Press report, Castro hailed Obamacare  as “a miracle” and “an important battle and a success of (Obama’s) government.”
Castro went on to favorably compare President Obama’s health care plan  to the one Cuba enacted a half century ago. Ironically, it was reported last year  that Cuban President Raul Castro said his country’s spending on health care was “simply unsustainable.”
In the Land of the Free, Americans remain unconvinced that Obama’s health care reforms are right for the United States. A CBS News poll  released Wednesday shows that 62% of Americans want Republicans to continue challenging the health care bill that President Obama signed into law this week.
