I don't know if the guy really believed that or not. Some people have suggested that he was having medication (or blood sugar, I can't remember which) problems that day and that he didn't literally mean "capsize". But it sure is strange and it's one of the funniest things I've ever seen from an elected official. That Admiral's ability to maintain his respectful, serious tone was admirable.
Obamacare’s fix for an American health care system that the federal government long ago broke, is to give the federal government far more power over American health care; that its solution to escalating health costs is to mandate greater health benefits (and, hence, higher costs); and that its solution to the pricey overreliance on pre-paid health plans — offered by insurance companies in lieu of real insurance — is to have the government require Americans to buy those pre-paid health plans under penalty of law.
