FACT CHECK: There will not be, nor is there a proposal to be, a UK style UHC system in the United States.

The Obama Administration has / is making reform proposals as is the Congress, that will make PRIVATE insurance much more affordable. And, having insurance will be VOLUNTARY - not mandated as some here would like.

The Obama Administration and the CBO also acknowledge that the proposals will NOT RESULT in 100% of Americans being covered with health insurance. They acknowledge that of the some 40 million uninsured (10 million of which are illegal immigrants), only 10 to 15% will gain coverage.

The CBO report also notes that there is a significant percentage that DO NOT WANT insurance.

FACT CHECK: NOTHING has yet been finalised in respect to a health solution.
FACT CHECK: The plan Obama has now will probably not work and a uhc will probably be the final solution. I will openly vote for a UHC as i now know it will work and wuill improve our system.
FACT CHECK: Illegals will not be included in a universal health system. They will have to finaly do what we Americans do now, PAY for their health and if they cannot they can be deported asap.
You may have good health coverage Gday but milli9ons of American people do not. Go pay your private fees. I know from what i am hearing on the streets that America is unhappy with the insurance run heaklth system. get used to it Gday because America is ready for change, big time and old dinosaurs like you will not be able to hold back change no matter how hard you try. America is now in the hands of the young free thinkers not the old indoctrinated neocons who are just led by their own greed
Read this word, CHANGE, cause the times they are a changin
