Happy Inauguration Day! Today Barack Obama was inaugurated as the 44th president of the United States. Since part of his campaign platform was health care for all Americans, an issue I feel very strongly about, I am excited to see what change he will bring to our nation's health care industry.
Although in his auguration address, President Obama (doesn't that sound wonderful!) didn't refer specifically to his plans regarding health care, he did hint at the change he intends to bring about in this area:
The question we ask today is not whether our government is too big or too small, but whether it works — whether it helps families find jobs at a decent wage, care they can afford, a retirement that is dignified. Where the answer is yes, we intend to move forward. Where the answer is no, programs will end.
It doesn't take a genius to know that the current health care setup is NOT working, so I'm sure that's part of the change he is referring to here. I'm looking forward to seeing what he will accomplish as president!
