In Case You Didn't Know
- For too long, our nation's leaders have talked about reforming health care. Now it is time to act. John McCain believes we can and must provide access to better health care, at lower cost, for every American. The key to achieving this health care reform is to return more control to the patients themselves.
- John McCain will reform the tax code to offer more health care choices by providing refundable tax credits ($2,500 for individuals and $5,000 for families) to offset the cost of insurance. John McCain will encourage and expand the benefits of Health Savings Accounts for families. In this era of increasing global economic integration, Senator McCain understands that American workers are switching jobs more and more frequently. As president, John McCain will ease the burden on American wo rkers by making insurance more portable so that their insurance follows them from one job to the next.
- John McCain has a comprehensive health care plan that will reduce costs, make health care more accessible, and improve the quality of medical care. Senator Barack Obama's plan to socialize the American health care system will have disastrous consequences on the timeliness and quality of health care services. Barack Obama's plan will also force American families to pay drastically higher taxes to pay for health care. At a time when there needs to be more competition in the health care sector, Senator Obama is pushing for less.
