Until today, Democrats have been rather quiet on one of their biggest accomplishments of the past year, Health Care Reform. For months, we heard lies upon lies about this bill and what it will do, but at midnight tonight, numerous common sense reforms will go into effect. I think everyone would agree the Health Care Reform was not perfect, many would like to see more, while a minority would like to see less, we all should be able to agree that the reforms are clearly a step in the right direction.
The following was posted on the White House blog this afternoon:
This morning we launched a new section of WhiteHouse.gov dedicated to health reform, a key feature of which is the interactive map with 50 stories from 50 states, giving a snapshot of the kinds of working people all across American who are just starting to get benefits from the President health care reform. A lot of these people, like Gail from New Hampshire whose surprise call from the President was caught in the video below, are benefiting from a series of changes going into full effect this week that have been called the Patient’s Bill of Rights. These changes include things like ending discrimination based on pre-existing conditions in kids, allowing kids to stay on their parents’ plans until they’re 26, making sure y don’t lose coverage just for being sick, an end to lifetime lifetime limits and much more.
The following video is one of 50 stories on how Health Care Reform has and will continue to benefit Americas from all walks of life:
