Quick Poll: Would you support the American Health Security Act of 2009?

posted by John Blanco @ 6:46 AM


Some details:

  1. Patients go to any doctor or hospital of their choice.

  2. The program is paid for by combining current sources of government health spending into a single fund with modest new taxes amounting to LESS than what people now pay for insurance premiums and out-of-pocket expenses.

  3. Comprehensive benefits, including coverage for dental, mental health, and prescription drugs.... Read More

  4. While federally funded, the program is to be administered by the states.

  5. By eliminating the high overhead and profits of the private, investor-owned insurance industry, along with the burdensome paperwork imposed on physicians, hospitals and other providers, the plan saves at least $400 billion annually - enough money to provide comprehensive, quality care to all.

  6. Community health centers are fully funded, giving the 60 million Americans now living in rural and underserved areas access to care.

  7. Patients would NO LONGER PAY co-pays or deductibles. Everything would be in-network, no need to worry about what doctors will and won't be covered.

  8. Employers would pay less into the system.

Knowing all this, would you support it? No fees, everyone getting coverage, more clinics, virtually no paperwork, cheaper for employers, cheaper for us, free choice of doctors, better coverage for mental illness...would you support it?

Once you've decided, read about The American Health Security Act of 2009.
