Obama has just announced that Congress is working on a New Health Care Plan that will make it compulsory for everyone in the United States to have Health Care Insurance. Those who already have Health Care Insurance can elect to keep their Insurance. Those who can't afford the insurance will be carried by the Government. What do you think about this?
Covering 50 million uninsured Americans could cost as much as $1.5 trillion over a decade, and cost is emerging as a major sticking point. Obama didn't offer new solutions to that problem in his letter Wednesday but did say he'd like to squeeze an additional $200 billion to $300 billion over 10 years from the Medicare and Medicaid government insurance programs for the elderly, disabled and poor.
