Obama promises that he will promote "affordable, accessible, and high-quality healthcare" because he believes everyone deserves a right to proper healthcare, especially children. He also believes that the costs of healthcare is the number one cause of personal bankrupcy and therefore a major problem. Obama also says that he will create a national public insurance program (for individuals and small businesses) and require all employers to contribute toward their employee's health plans. Obama promotes reducing costs of drugs for the public in order to provide an easier access to essential medicines.

I disagree with Obama's support for universal health care because it would decrease the quality of healthcare provided in hospitals. I do believe that more people should receive government-provided health insurance but it shouldn't be totally free for everyone, for the reason stated above. However, I do agree that hospitals should definitely be more efficient and accurately document their costs. It would minimize error and save the taxpayers a lot of money.
