Hillary Clinton on Health Care


Everyone should have exceptionable and affordable health care regardless of their pre-existing conditions. There are three parts to health care reform: lowering costs, improving quality and making health insurance mandatory for everyone. Her health care strategy, "American Health Choices Plan" would afford every American the right to choose the type of health care they want. She wants to place caps on how much insurance companies charge people depending on their income. She prefers a national health care plan as opposed to state-by-state health care.
