U.S.: Healthcare Reforms

This program is a must watch if you are into healthcare reform debate.

Three rules:

- Insurance companies MUST accept everyone, and cant make profit on basic care (no more free dough for you suckahs!!!)
- Mandatory health coverage for all: if you are poor, the government pays the premium for you. You lose your job, you keep the insurance.
- Government sets the rates for procedures/drugs: no matter where you are, you pay the same price. This makes hospitals and insurance companies non-profit, YET compete for survival

However, U.S. would still need to worry about how to reduce malpractice insurance premiums...
