I'm working hard to help Obama pass meaningful legislation that regulates industries that lack competition to provide the necessary and meaningful services and products that this country needs. I believe that the corporations have gotten so large, and the drive for profit so big, that they no longer provide American with the leadership that we need to address hard problems like good health care, energy independence, and an educational system that let's our country compete. Obama does have a plan, to initiate new programs to rebuild our economy, such as a health care system that works for less money, and investment in new technologies to grow the economy. But, he can't pass the legislation by himself, he needs our support.

An interesting article because, in the quotes it offers, the politics played are very visible, between public option supporters, Baucus, and Republicans.

This is an important analysis of the Republican alternatives and proposals for health care reform. I'm not one to defend the Republicans, but they have offered amendments that have been incorporated into the HELP bill, and none of these have been mentioned. However, no attention has been given to the Republican proposals, and it is only fair to take a look at those, so I consider this an important article.

The supports Lawrence O'Donnell's opinion that the public option should be left out of the Senate's final bill, protecting it from being dismantled, and then reintroduced at the final conference. The argument is that other elements will be addressed, and the gaping hole in the assumption is that HOW the insurance will be provided will not be addressed in Senate. I don't believe that will be the case, some mechanism will be provided one way or another, and the discussion of HOW will be had. By leaving it out, it makes it harder to include it in the final conference. I completely disagree with this opinion, and find the logic flawed, although interesting and well written.

This informative article looks as the the different health care reform bills, comparing actuarial rates, or what percentage of medical expenses each HCR bill will require to be paid by the insured, balanced by annual caps on out of pocket expenditures.
