New York Post Columnist MICHAEL GOODWIN discussed President Obama touting 7 million signing up for health insurance but that number doesn't tell us if it is really working for people and the country because no one knows who has actually has paid in. Obama is touting the 7 million sign up because it is all about him and the next election.  Obama has never really governed but has only campaigned. On Charter Schools Michael talks about how they are getting a bad rap from detractors and teachers unions.  The left just can't accept that Charters are doing better without unionized teachers. The Charter movement is an experiment that is working and should be embraced.
