Obamacare or Nixoncare?

Nixon's Plan For Health Reform, In His Own Words

President Richard Nixon's Special Message to the Congress Proposing a Comprehensive Health Insurance Plan

February 6, 1974

From The American Presidency Project, University of California at Santa Barbara

To the Congress of the United States:

One of the most cherished goals of our democracy is to assure every American an equal opportunity to lead a full and productive life

In the last quarter century, we have made remarkable progress toward that goal, opening the doors to millions of our fellow countrymen who were seeking equal opportunities in education, jobs and voting.

Now it is time that we move forward again in still another critical area: health care.

Without adequate health care, no one can make full use of his or her talents and opportunities. It is thus just as important that economic, racial and social barriers not stand in the way of good health care as it is to eliminate those barriers to a good education and a good job.

Three years ago, I proposed a major health insurance program to the Congress, seeking to guarantee adequate financing of health care on a nationwide basis. That proposal generated widespread discussion and useful debate....

For the average family, it is clear that without adequate insurance, even normal care can 'be a financial burden while a catastrophic illness can mean catastrophic debt.

Beyond the question of the prices of health care, our present system of health care insurance suffers from two major flaws :

First, even though more Americans carry health insurance than ever before, the 25 million Americans who remain uninsured often need it the most and are most unlikely to obtain it. They include many who work in seasonal or transient occupations, high-risk cases, and those who are ineligible for Medicaid despite low incomes.

Comprehensive health insurance is an idea whose time has come in America.

There has long been a need to assure every American financial access to high quality health care. As medical costs go up, that need grows more pressing.

Now, for the first time, we have not just the need but the will to get this job done. There is widespread support in the Congress and in the Nation for some form of comprehensive health insurance.

Surely if we have the will, 1974 should also be the year that we find the way.

The plan that I am proposing today is, I believe, the very best way. Improvements can be made in it, of course, and the Administration stands ready to work with the Congress, the medical profession, and others in making those changes.

But let us not be led to an extreme program that would place the entire health care system under the dominion of social planners in Washington.

Let us continue to have doctors who work for their patients, not for the Federal Government. Let us build upon the strengths of the medical system we have now, not destroy it.

Indeed, let us act sensibly. And let us act now--in 1974--to assure all Americans financial access to high quality medical care.

The White House,

The third, fourth or fifth party would get my vote for governor. The so called CONservative politician in the office now is caving and/or pandering to groups with money for votes filling their budgets with state money.

Even worse the current 2.5 BILLION road money bill is to cover up, make up and correct years of neglect and incompetence. And last but not least pander to the union voter.

Pennsylvania does NOT properly MAINTAIN or REPAIR roads. Everything seems to turn into a replacement project. A redo but NOT a repair.

How would you like as a consumer if you called a carpenter out to fix a floor or window they only wanted to rebuild the house. Because that's what this current road bill. Is an extrememe makeover to cover up years of neglect, malfeasance, incompetence and corruption along with kowtowing for votes. It's not about actually maintaining or repairing the roads.

Time for a third party candidate and politician at all levels of government. Get the establishment politicians out of there.

How epically incompetent has Obama's failed five year 'leadership' been that the Obamacare debacle is touted as his number one accomplishment?

I'm not going to vote for the CONservative in the governor's office who in the same year GAVE the Philadelphia School 45 million dollars EXTRA and is pushing a 2.5 BILLION dollar transportation bill ironically selling it used car salesman logic. This is the same administration that wants to lift the asset test on benefits.

How is the governor a fiscal conservative. He is a pandering for votes which makes just another POS politician.

And one only knows his knowledge of the Penn State fiasco.

The governor is not a Republican, he is politician first and foremost.
