In your opinion has Obama clearly explained his plans to overhaul the system?

Obama is completing work on a new strategy aimed at countering opposition to an overhaul, a senior administration official said. The president will address a joint session of Congress on Wednesday to revitalize his push for healthcare reform.

One option is for Obama to lay out a "more specific vision" of what he wants for healthcare reform, an official said. A CBS News poll this week said most Americans think Obama has not clearly explained his plans to overhaul the system.

  • No, he hasn't. I don't know that it is possible. What they want to do is too large a project and never done before. It would make more sense to have smaller bills to have reform in specific areas, written in clear understandable language with a time frame that allows debate and revision if necessary. The current bill is all about control. I say this because first off government doesn't do anything efficiently, they don't know how much things cost in real life, a proposal like this has not ever been done for a population the size of ours, and the bill encompasses too much. I don't think they would ever be able to clearly explain this bill. I mean, we have hear elected officials say that they won't bother because they don't understand, so what's the point of reading something that will effect the population for the remainder of time?

  • In April of 2006 he told the unions he wanted a single payer system. What's more to discuss or explain?

    HE doesn't plan on being the major player in reformation to UHC. HE plans on the Government option being the major role when employers dump private options due to cost and taxes and leaves nothing ultimately but the UHC plan. Thus leaving a single payer system, what he wanted all along, and leaves his hands off the way things worked out.

    How much the co-pays and deductibles will be?
    Will there be a yearly or lifetime cap?

    Will it cover dental?
    Will it cover midwives and home births?
    Will it cover experimental or alternative treatments?
    What will the compensation be for Dr.s and hospitals?
    How will the government come up with the money to subsidize millions of people?
    Will there be cuts to Medicare?
