Not Communist, Not Even Ideological, Just Humane !

That's what health care for all as proposed by Obama really is, humane!
It's not communist or socialist!
By the way, some here in Germany claim the same of the minimum wage, which exists in America and not here, hoping to fend of its institution here. Did you know the US is socialist because it has a minimum wage and therefore no hope for a good economic system?
Of course NOT. And that of course NOT applies to all those claims and fears raised against health care plans for all in the US. You should ask yourself why ANYONE could be against helping people find treatment and cure for ailments. Either they hate people or are only concerned with amassing wealth at the cost of others, or of protecting their own privilege, thinking they can only be healthy when others cannot. Cynical people should not decide who can go the doctor.

“It will provide more security and stability to those who have health insurance.
It will provide insurance to those who don’t. And it will lower the cost of health carefor our families, our businesses, and our government." – PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA

If You Have Health Insurance,the President's Plan:

  • Ends discrimination against people with pre-existing conditions.
  • Limits premium discrimination based on gender and age.
  • Prevents insurance companies from dropping coverage when people are sick and need it most.
  • Caps out-of-pocket expenses so people don’t go broke when they get sick.
  • Eliminates extra charges for preventive care like mammograms, flu shots and diabetes tests to improve health and save money.
  • Protects Medicare for seniors.
  • Eliminates the “donut-hole” gap in coverage for prescription drugs.

If You Don’t Have Insurance,the President's Plan:

  • Creates a new insurance marketplace — the Exchange — that allows people without insurance and small businesses to compare plans and buy insurance at competitive prices.
  • Provides new tax credits to help people buy insurance.
  • Provides small businesses tax credits and affordable options for covering employees.
  • Offers a public health insurance option to provide the uninsured and those who can’t find affordable coverage with a real choice.
  • Immediately offers new, low-cost coverage through a national “high risk” pool to protect people with preexisting conditions from financial ruin until the new Exchange is created.

For All Americans,the President's Plan:

  • Won’t add a dime to the deficit and is paid for upfront.
  • Requires additional cuts if savings are not realized.
  • Implements a number of delivery system reforms that begin to rein in health care costs and align incentives for hospitals, physicians, and others to improve quality.
  • Creates an independent commission of doctors and medical experts to identify waste, fraud and abuse in the health care system.
  • Orders immediate medical malpractice reform projects that could help doctors focus on putting their patients first, not on practicing defensive medicine.
  • Requires large employers to cover their employees and individuals who can afford it to buy insurance so everyone shares in the responsibility of reform.
