The writer of the paper suggests three changes to the American health care system, namely, making a government sponsored healthcare program, like Medicaid, available to all Americans, instituting massive tort reform, and finally, requiring any person opting out of either private insurance or government-subsidized insurance to pay in full for medical services. The writer believes that the combination of these three changes will allow every person affordable access to quality medical care without requiring people to subsidize health care for those who opt out of insurance coverage.
From the Paper:"The United States health care system is in a shambles. While the wealthy have access to the best health care in the world and the poor are covered by government insurance programs, but many in the middle class are forced to choice between expensive health care coverage and other of life's essentials. Therefore, my respectful recommendation, Mr. President is that you reform our current health care system. Obviously, there is no single, simple solution to the state of health care in America. However, by incorporating several changes, it should be possible to make basic health care affordable for all Americans without an incredible increase in taxes and without sacrificing high American medical standards. The first change would be to make a government sponsored healthcare program, like Medicaid, available to all Americans. The second change would be to institute massive tort reform. The third change would be to require that any person opting out of either private insurance or government-subsidized insurance pay in full for medical services as they are received. The combination of these three changes would allow every person affordable access to quality medical care without requiring people to subsidize health care for those who opt out of insurance coverage."
