President Barack Obama’s Healthcare Reform Progress and Policy


This post pertains to the Obama Administration’s specific goals, outlined during the campaign trail and immediately following the inauguration, of revamping the United States Healthcare System.  

A sharp dichotomy exists concerning how both Democrats and Republicans plan to revamp the healthcare system.  Fundamentally, the Republicans want to keep the upper bracket of the economic spectrum of individual ($250,000<X<$370,000) satisfied to allow for a trickle-down affect.  This will reinstate financial stability over time, ultimately allowing workers to return to their jobs and the issue of health insurance and health care subsiding, in ways not fully mentioned here.  The Democratic ideology might not be, as some might say, as cynical.  The middle-class must be taken care of as the entire population of individuals, not simply certain brackets or exclusive populations, need to be accounted for to most efficiently implement change and lessen any hardships endured.   

A common theme within this nation is that affordable health care for mostly every citizen is unattainable, especially as the recession takes a stronger grip on society. Being a bureaucratic society, it is not as simple as people may make it seem, and this healthcare reform is proving to be a long and enduring process that involves politics and financial stability.   The term financial stability brings up an important fact – that the banks were the first main priority in this nation before any other earmark or proposal to keep the U.S. economy somewhat alive, a.k.a. not reminiscent of the 1930s.  This post will hopefully allow readers to understand this process that has occurred, and still in progress, with the aid of pictures that represent stellar moments of this healthcare renovative process during the onset of the Obama Administration.
