Pass it on: Pres. Obama's HealthCare Plan in 4 Mins           

Just ran into this on the web, and I think we need to make it viral and pass it around. It's Obama laying out his plan for health care in a relatively short video that is easy to understand.

So now, when people say they don't know President Obama's plan, we can just show them this video. Even if they can't hear it, they can read the bullet points conveniently placed on the right.

We have to be vigilent now because the "GOP" is continuing to spread lies about the plan, the latest of which being that the health care will be rationed by RACE (who's not racist again? Sounds like playing on people's racist fears to me).

Bullet points in the video:

1. If you like your insurance, you can keep it
2. No more denial of coverage for pre-existing conditions
3. No dropped coverage when you get sick
4. Eliminates yearly and lifetime caps on coverage
5. Caps out-of-pocket expenses
6. Required coverage for preventative care

If you don't have insurance:
1. A new insurance marketplace, the Exchange
2. New tax xredits for individuals and small business
3. Low-cost coverage for all individuals and small businesses
4. A public health insurance option

For All Americans:
1. Won't add a dime to deficit and paid for upfront
2. Independent medical experts to identify waste, fraud, and abuse
3. Required coverage for preventative care
4. Eliminates the prescription drug "Donut Hole"
5. Immediate medical malpractice reform projects

Video ends with: "The time for bickering is over, the time for games has passed. Now is the time for action. Now is when we must bring the BEST ideas of both parties together and show the American people that we can still do what we were sent here to do. Now is the time to deliver on HealthCare!"
