Here is what the White House says about Obama's new Health Care program:
"The current system often denies insurance due to pre-existing conditions, charges steep out-of-pocket fees – and sometimes isn’t there at all if you become seriously ill.
It’s time to fix our unsustainable insurance system and create a new foundation for health care security. That means guaranteeing your health care security and stability with eight basic consumer protections:
No discrimination for pre-existing conditions
No exorbitant out-of-pocket expenses, deductibles or co-pays
No cost-sharing for preventive care
No dropping of coverage if you become seriously ill
No gender discrimination
No annual or lifetime caps on coverage
Extended coverage for young adults
Guaranteed insurance renewal so long as premiums are paid
Learn more about these consumer protections at Whitehouse.gov.
Over the next month there is going to be an avalanche of misinformation and scare tactics from those seeking to perpetuate the status quo. But we know the cost of doing nothing is too high. Health care costs will double over the next decade, millions more will become uninsured, and state and local governments will go bankrupt."
It's high time for the White House to get the real facts out there, and not let its Health Care plan be buried by the Right-Wing Noise Machine. There must be a reason why Britishers visiting the USA rush back to England if they get sick, and don't stay here in the US where they might be bankrupted by a serious illness. The same goes for Frenchmen, Italians, Germans, Canadians, etc. Even a poor country like Cuba has universal medical coverage for all of its people, which we don't.
