There is new hope for the millions of uninsured and underinsured children, youth, and older adults. Later today, Congressional leaders and the President will convene in the Blair House, across from the White House, to discuss the future of health reform. Earlier this week the President released his own proposal that makes a number of important changes to the Senate health care bill that passed earlier this year. Nobody expects there to be unanimous agreement over the President’s proposal today, but people do deserve a reasonable and constructive debate from our nation’s leaders.
Inaction on health care reform is not an option; the rolls of the uninsured will continue to rise, while others will face higher premiums and shrinking coverage. Generations United is pleased President Obama and Congress have decided to continue the important work to make sure people of all ages have access to high-quality, affordable health insurance.
