Combating lies with truth


Health Care

Health Care

As the final push for real health care reform occurs within the United States President Obama is expecting those that seek to impede progress to make a last ditch effort to attack the ideas of change to a broken system, and the hopes for a better country. In anticipation of the inevitable storm of lies and misinformation that surely will come from the health insurance lobbyists, President Obama will be releasing facts on the whitehouse.gov website. I would like to pass on these facts.

THE PRESIDENT’S PLAN FOR HEALTH REFORM

“At this moment, we are being called upon to fulfill our duty to the citizens of this nation
and to future generations… I don’t know how passing health care will play politically, but
I do know that it’s the right thing to do. It’s right for our families. It’s right for our
businesses. It’s right for the United States of America.”
– PRESIDENT OBAMA
Americans across this country agree that our health care system is broken: Unaccountable
insurance companies ration care, soaring premiums cripple the budgets of our businesses and
families, and vital care remains out of reach for far too many. The time for change has come.
President Obama’s final proposal incorporates the best ideas from both parties to put
Americans in control of our own health care.
HERE’ S WHAT THE PRES IDENT’ S PLAN FOR HEALTH REFORM WI L L DO:
PROTECT AMERICANS FROM INSURANCE COMPANY ABUSES
• You will never be denied coverage because of pre-existing conditions
• You will never be hit with arbitrary premium hikes
• You will never see your coverage revoked just when you get sick or injured
• You will never face unlimited out-of-pocket expenses for your care
GUARANTEE AFFORDABLE CHOICES
• If you like your current doctor and you like your current plan, you keep them
• Uninsured individuals and small business owners will become part of a powerful negotiating
pool, just like members of Congress and other federal employees, lowering prices and
increasing choice
• Struggling middle-class families will receive a tax credit to make coverage even more
affordable – the largest middle class tax cut for health care in history
REDUCE THE COST OF CARE FOR OUR FAMILIES, BUSINESSES
AND THE GOVERNMENT
• We’ll save billions of dollars every year by reducing waste and abuse in our current system
• We’ll save and create millions of jobs, raise wages and strengthen the economy
• We’ll cut the deficit by nearly $1 trillion over two decades

More to come

You may notice that this is not filed under “politics” that is because this issue goes beyond petty politics.
