Fidel Castro on Thursday declared passage of American health care reform "a miracle" and a major victory for Obama's presidency, but couldn't help chide the United States for taking so long to enact what communist Cuba achieved decades ago.

I can't believe I'm seeing this on AP! I wonder how many know how bad health care is in communist Cuba!

Cuba has the best healthcare system of all third-world countries, seriously, Michael Moore told me so.

Don’t worry, Fidel, we’ll have people taking boats out of here very soon.

More from the other Leader: Peas in a Pod.

“We consider health reform to have been an important battle and a success of his (Obama’s) government,” Castro wrote in an essay published in state media, adding that it would strengthen the president’s hand against lobbyists and “mercenaries.”

We know more about Fidel Castro’s background than Obama’s.

Think about it.

The AP knows that in Cuba, everyone gets the same. That’s what makes it “great”. And the AP also knows that there are the “special people” that get “greater” care in Cuba, politicians and their cooperative media lapdogs.

I just hope the people wake up to this and give the Republicans a majority in the house. Then, for my second wish from Santa, I want the Republicans to lead this country, something they didn’t do much of before they lost power in Congress.

I’m sure that is just a viscious right-wing extremist remark. Communism and socialism are beautiful things, and very inclusive.

It has to be a Republican fear-mongering lie.

I wonder if that part comes before or after the student loan and new 15,000 IRS agents section of our new health care bill.

Noah Webster spins in his grave at the tortured propaganda misuse of the verb “achieved”.

Ya think Castro helped write the bill?

Commies are still our enemy and Obama is a collaborator.

Treason. This is no time to look away and be fearful. Step up the resistance NOW. Be peaceful, but forceful.

Makes Fidel and Barry Obama butt buddies I think. Very elite club almost nobody wants to belong to IMO.

This article should be played repeatedly in TV ads reminding Americans of 0bamacare; hang it like an albatross on the necks of the RATs!
