"I...believe that every American has the right to affordable health care. I believe that the millions of Americans who can't take their children to a doctor when they get sick have that right...We now face an opportunity - and an obligation - to turn the page on the failed politics of yesterday's health care debates. It's time to bring together businesses, the medical community, and members of both parties around a comprehensive solution to this crisis, and it's time to let the drug and insurance industries know that while they'll get a seat at the table, they don't get to buy every chair."
-Barack Obama, Speech in Iowa City, IA, 5/27/07

Obama’s comprehensive health care plan will have the following features:
• Guaranteed eligibility.
• Comprehensive benefits, similar to the plan members of Congress have.
• Affordable premiums, co-pays and deductibles.
• Simplified paperwork and reined in health costs.
• Easy enrollment.
• Portability and choice. Participants in the new public plan will be able to move from job to job without changing or jeopardizing their health care coverage.
