Jump-start Health Care Reform
President-elect Obama has found himself in a unique place in American history. With multiple crises affecting millions, Obama is in a position to jump-start greatly needed relief efforts. In particular, he is faced with the responsibility to reform our deeply flawed health care system. The consequences of this inefficient form of health care extend far beyond, contributing to the economic hardships of millions more Americans. For Obama to prove that he is serious about fixing the way Americans are treated in hospitals, he must reach out and listen to the voices that can educate him about the benefits of Medicare for all; he must use his advisers and staff members to help form a real plan of action; he must realize that immediate results for the economy may well be realized when the average American can say, "Getting sick isn't as bad as it used to be."
