“The President’s health care plan is not about covering the uninsured, making health insurance affordable, or even driving down the cost of health care. Its real purpose is to make it easier for businesses to dump their health insurance burden onto workers, give tax breaks to the wealthy, and boost the profits of banks and financial brokers. As we have seen with the disastrous Medicare Prescription Drug Plan, health care policies concocted at the behest of special interests do nothing to help the average American. In many cases, they can make health care even more inaccessible."
