US Health Care Reform

I am not living in the US, but I have e-mailed my Congress people to stand behind Obama in creating reforms to our broken health care system. I do not want to see another failure that Clinton faced. Health care is getting increasing worse in the US according to all of my friends who live there, regardless of how deep their pockets are.

  1. 33% of Americans think the US health care system needs a major overhaul
    Only 16% think we should leave it just as it is

    We are the only developed nation in the world that doesn't provide healthcare in some form to all it's citizens. In fact many of us have no health insurance

    Other developed nations have found their solution to heath care
    How do they do it? Compare

    The question is, though, do they really like their system. Or would they prefer a system like ours.

    The vast majority of Americans feel that we need health care reform this year.

    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
