Rick Scott Spouts Need For "Pillars" Of Reform That Align Closely With President Obama's Guidelines

The May 31, 2009 airing of Conservatives for Patients Rights' infomercial on the pitfalls of a single-payer health system (never mind that President Obama does not want a single-payer plan) included CPR founder Rick Scott's "pillars for health care reform."  Because Scott's pillars closely follow President Obama's reform guidelines, it is somewhat confusing as to why Scott is against the President's goals.
