Affordable Universal Health Care Proposal

In 2008, just as Obama was being elected to serve his first term as President, TAIPD produced a health care proposal and, shortly after the November election, we sent it off to the President-elect for his consideration. It was known that health care reform was going to be one of his major aims and so we hoped to have some influence on what he would propose.

The proposal has been the most popular work that we have done – over 30,000 reads have been logged in on the proposal on our web site.

In view of its popularity and in view of the fact that health care reform will be a major theme in the election this fall, we are moving the proposal (and the cover letter we used to send it to Obama) out of the archives and back onto the home page of our web site.

As our site is currently undergoing, significant revision, the proposal will be put up for now at least via a link to a separate page.

Please check out what we have had to say a decade ago.

A PROPOSAL
REGARDING
THE BASIC PRINCIPLES
UPON WHICH
AN AFFORDABLE, UNIVERSAL HEALTH CARE SYSTEM
CAN AND SHOULD BE ESTABLISHED IN THE U.S.A.
Goal

The goal must be to build a health care system that provides high quality preventive and curative health care to every American as a right, not a privilege, and to do so in the context of a cost containment program that makes the system affordable to individual Americans and their families, and to our government at all levels. local, state and federal.

Such an affordable, universally-accessible health care system has two components: the insurance or funding component and the health care delivery component. This proposal addresses both of these elements.
