Background One of the major platforms for Barack Obama when he first ran for president in 2008 was healthcare reform. Obama’s approach for fixing the healthcare system was to provide universal coverage by expanding the system that had been in place of using both private and public group insurance, while adding consumer protections and income-based subsidies (Collins, S., Nicholson, J., Rustgi, S., & Davis, K., 2008). Obama believed that expanding coverage at an affordable cost, which included increasing eligibility to government programs such as Medicaid, would make things better for everyone.
An Obama ad campaign stated 47 million do not contain healthcare insurance. Obama’s plan solves this problem with a national healthcare system. He will make comparable rates as Americans in Congress. Small businesses will get tax credits to cover 50% of the cost of insuring their employees. Obama will make sure that healthcare insurance work for Americans, and small businesses, not drug companies. The national healthcare system will defiantly change the system for the better.
Health Care upsets me greatly. He encouraged reform of health care by talking about China improving its economy, which is… not really happening. I feel like he never really answered any objections about the bill and just stated the benefits that the Democratic Party has been hawking the entire time. I feel like nothing is really being offered by the Democratic Party in response to the Republican assault on the bill, just more and more complaints about the Republican complaints. The fact that the Democrats are saying the Republicans aren’t providing suggestions as they lock the Republicans out of the discussion stages of the bill. Health Care absolutely needs to be fixed, but I don’t think that what the Democrats have should be implemented this quickly. Why not start with the necessities like malpractice reform and no denial for customers with the money and then build up to the free government healthcare for everyone?
Universal Healthcare in the United States has been a long time journey that dates back decades and we, as a country, are far behind other developed countries who have had universal healthcare for a long time. Today, Healthcare is obtained through employers or by people paying for it by themselves, which is incredibly expensive due to high premiums. Five years have passed since the controversial Obama care, or Affordable Care Act, was signed into law on March 23, 2010. The Affordable Care Act aimed at fixing the many problems that the United States has with healthcare by making it available to everyone, but also more efficient and this required drastic changes that made some people happy while others unhappy since some are benefiting while others are not. These people include politicians, but foremost presidential candidates. Candidate’s stance on the issue of healthcare is truly important due to the fact that if they’re the next president of the United States, it could hurt or improve the health care reform. Noteworthy candidates are: Jeb Bush, Hillary Clinton, Marco Rubio, and Bernie Sanders. Republicans and Democrats have long debated whether or not the Affordable Care Act should be repealed or replaced. Republicans believe that it is a problem while Democrats support it. The Affordable Care Act should not be replaced but instead improved because it provides quality and affordable health care to Americans. Everyone gets sick and people shouldn’t be afraid of receiving help
The most important change he wants to make for the United States when elected president, is to give back to the children. Give more money to schools so that
One of President Trump's campaign main goal that could have been the determining factor in his election this last November, was to revoke Obamacare and fully substitute it with a Republican version. This version nicknamed “Trumpcare” would supposedly offer insurance for everyone at a much lower price, but as we saw in the first draft of President
During Trumps presidential announcement speech he presents his ideas on how he will bring back to life the American since for him the American dream is dead. Among all the claims he expresses his thoughts on Obamacare also known as the Affordable Care Act. He affirms “We have a disaster called the big lie: Obamacare. Obamacare." and admits that indeed Obamacare will really kick in 2016.Trump plans on repealing and replacing Obamacare. He plans on granting better health insurance to everyone at an inexpensive cost for the people and for the government. Trump exaggerates the costs to persuade his audience into believing of Obamacare as a catastrophe, however, he fails to backup the data he presents not to mention that the data is wrong.
Rubio says people are losing health insurance because of Obamacare. This references the Congressional Budget Office’s guess that 17 million people would lose "employer-sponsored coverage" by 2017. Rubio claims that the expansion of Medicare will help many American citizens (Rubio). But although that sounds bland, there is a very personal reason. Rubio states that Medicare paid for his father's health care while he was wrestling with the illness that killed him in 2010 (Gordon). According to Rubio, this government program had let his father die with dignity by paying for his
Healthcare is the United States has had a long and turbulent history. Beginning with Medicare during the Johnson administration to Reagan’s reductions on most government agencies, health care has been a polarizing topic in the modern age of politics. A young senator from Illinois, Barak Obama, ran in the 2008
President-Elect Trump issued a seven-point health care reform plan that is a preliminary version of the concept of what he would like to do. Furthermore, this eludes to Trump’s vision to, “…repeal and replace Obamacare with Health Savings Accounts (HSAs), work with Congress to create a patient-centered health care system that promotes choice, quality, and affordability, work with states to establish high-risk pools to ensure access to coverage for individuals who have not maintained continuous coverage, allow people to purchase insurance across state lines in all 50 states thus creating a dynamic market, require price transparency from all health care providers, remove barriers to enter into
“We will pass reform that lowers cost, promotes choice, and provides coverage that every American can count on. And we will do it this year.” The preceding is a powerful statement from the newly elected President Barak Obama. One of the main aspects of both political campaigns was health care reform. The above quote shows passion and encouragement, but the quotes about health care do not end there. Georgian republican gubernatorial candidate and health care policy maker John Oxendine expressed: “Their proposal would virtually devastate the private healthcare sector in this country along with competition and patient choice, by replacing it with bureaucratic planning and government control. The result of this plan and its one trillion
U.S. health care reform is currently one of the most heavily discussed topics in health discourse and politics. After former President Clinton’s failed attempt at health care reform in the mid-1990s, the Bush administration showed no serious efforts at achieving universal health coverage for the millions of uninsured Americans. With Barack Obama as the current U.S. President, health care reform is once again a top priority. President Obama has made a promise to “provide affordable, comprehensive, and portable health coverage for all Americans…” by the end of his first term (Barackobama.com). The heated debate between the two major political parties over health care reform revolves around how to pay for it and more importantly, whether it
Burr’s case, troublesome in itself for rais- ing perplexing questions concerning the law of treason, was the more vexatious to Marshall for reopening the quarrel between the Jefferson administration and the federal judiciary, as played out earlier in the controversy over Marbury v. Madison in 1803 and the impeachment of Justice Samuel Chase in 1805. No one was more fully attuned to the awkward dilemma he faced in conducting this high-profile case. To maintain a posture of strict judicial impartiality was a duty that was at once imperative and exceedingly difficult to fulfill in the highly charged political atmosphere of the time.
I feel like Aaron Burr advice was good advice but at certain times it wasn't. Aaron Burr fee advice was ”Talk less, Smile more Don't let them know what you're against or what for and Fools who run their mouth wined off dead” which I feel was good advice for when you're starting off but he became more known I feel like at times Hamilton did it right with talking more because he let the people know what change he could make. I do agree with smile more because people feel more welcome and trusted and show a better attitude which Hamilton needed any type of star the could get when he began. I did not agree all the time with “Don’t let them know what you’re against or what for because I feel like when you are a leader taking a stand, I feel
This is a simple, but well put together site. A simple nav-bar sits in the header on the right-hand side while the company logo graces the left. The welcome page consists of a transparent image with a by-line. It invites you to either play the trailer movie or scroll down. Below are images to click to find out more about the individuals in the picture. Because the nav-bar is at the top it is easy to go from one page to another, thereby allowing you to find the contact information, the about, and the stories. I would say the only thing that I think is redundant on the site, is the fact that they have a stories tab and an explore tab, both of which does the same thing. Eliminating one of them would stream line the site.
