The Obama Budget and the EMBRACE Healthcare Reform Plan

It is very telling, and in that respect so different than the Clinton healthcare initiative, that in his budget Obama has put aside a $634 billion reserve fund for health care reform and left it up to the Congress to come up with a plan. He has outlined a set of guidelines and has left it up to Congress to hash out the details. He has stipulated that the plan should ensure that coverage be universal, affordable, portable and there should be investments in prevention and improved quality of care.

Although there are many proposals out in Congress, EMBRACE  fits these criteria and comes at  a good time, especially since it looks like we will need a compromise.
