Affordable Health Care for America Act (H.R. 3962)


You've probably seen the news by now. The House narrowly passed the health care reform bill and now it's headed to the Senate. The only Republican supporting this bill was Anh "Joseph" Cao (Louisiana). Is our nation ready to completely overhaul our existing health care system? Or will we try to place a few patches and hope that it lasts a few more years?

According to the latest from CNN, the Affordable Health Care for America Act (H.R. 3962) restricts insurance companies from denying coverage to anyone with a pre-existing condition or charging higher premiums based on gender or medical history. It also provides federal subsidies to those who cannot afford health insurance. And it guarantees coverage for 96 percent of Americans.

Will the Senate pass a bill that contains the controversial "public option?" Not if it's up to Sen. Joseph Lieberman. Maybe those who live in Connecticut don't really need a public option, but those who live in Louisiana probably do.

  2. Healthcare Reform is a 21st Century Economic Opportunity. The Engine of Economic Growth in this 21st Century is "Broadband." Our current Healthcare Spending is Unsustainble.

    If we, properly Deployed Health Information Technology (HIT) Solutions and Training, we can Increased Productivity (i, e, medical data mining/warehousing, risks treatment, service delivery), Efficiency (i, e, medical errors, reddundant and inappropriate care) and have a Costs Savings of aroound 20-30% of our Annual National Healthcare Expenditures ($2.4 Trillions).

    This type of Investment is like the Investments made in the past, in the National Transportation Inter-State Highways, which Increased Productivity and our GDP.

    We can statr by, Deploying a pure Packet-based, All Optical/IP, Multi-Service National Transport Network Infrastructure, using Ethernet throughout this National "Network of Networks." This new "Network of Networks can then Connect all Optical Islands, Nationwide.

    The Investment in this Next Generation "Network of Networks" can Serve as a Business Driver for: e-Healthcare, e-Commerce, e-Education, Energy Systems, Transportation Systems, Social Networking, Entertainment, etc
