Both Republicans and Democrats have come up with their plans for health reform
Let’s take the best ideas from each side, add in the best of systems from around the world and come up with something that will work.

No one is going to get everything they want. But at least we can fix some of the major problems.

Iinaction is totally unacceptable. And just taking something to dull the pain isn’t going to really solve the problem
