Subject: Health Reform and Our Fiscal Future


Today, President Obama used his weekly address to underscore the fact that the skyrocketing costs of the health care status quo are unsustainable. In addition to the $635 billion already allocated in the budget, the President announced $313 billion in savings "that will rein in unnecessary spending and increase both efficiency and the quality of care." Altogether, approximately $950 billion has been dedicated to offset the cost of reform over the next 10 years.

The President has made it clear that reforming health care is not only a moral imperative, but also a crucial step towards restoring our country's fiscal discipline. In his weekly address, he says:

"I know there are some who question whether we can afford to act this year, but the real question is whether we can afford not to act. With every passing year, health care costs consume a larger share of our nation's spending, and contribute to yawning deficits that we cannot control. So let me be clear: health reform is not part of the problem when it comes to our fiscal future, it is a fundamental part of the solution."
