Warren Buffett

Billionaire investor Warren Buffett said Thursday he'd have voted for the Senate's health care reform bill,in a phone call from Omaha Warren Buffett told the Lincoln (Neb.) Journal Star that he supports the U.S. Senate's healthcare reform bill, even though it is not "perfect."
"It is time for us to try to make an improvement."
"The perfect is always the enemy of the good, and the unknown scares people." he said,

But tackling healthcare reform is "the right thing for the country," he added.

The current system "is not working well," Buffett told the newspaper. "Healthcare costs have galloped up as a percentage of (GDP gross domestic product) and we haven't covered the population the way a rich country should."
