HEALTH INSURANCE IN USA





Why the American Democratic Party with Obama to the head [219-212 votes (including 34 democrats)], could approve a new sanitary legislation?. Because a lot of middle class people complained that they were cut the health insurance if they were unemployed, the costs of the insurance increased constantly, did they exist but of 10 million not assured Americans, because a marked deficit federal budget was propitiated, because benefits were alone for big insurance companies but not for ordinary people. To pass this legislation means for Obama to maintain his political power and to pass to the history. The victory was achieved with the support of anti abortion democrats under the promise of not using federal funds to carry out abortions.

The new law gives the government a new and bigger role in the american sanitary system, improves the quality of life of millions of American, adds 16 million new insureds to the Medicaid, subsidizes with 938 billions dollars during 10 years to private insurance companies that assist people of low resources, wide the covering of health to but employees (instead of paying a penalty). In state areas where covering of insurance doesn't exist private insurance companies can be created that abide to state canons. The insurance could reach to 9 million illegal immigrants. The American Medical Association and the pharmaceutical industry supported the new legislation. Meantime republicans are not given for conquered, they wait while deploy new strategies.

REFORMA DE SALUD EN USA

¿Porque pudo el Partido Demócrata americano con Obama a la cabeza [219-212 votos (incluyendo 34 democratas)], aprobar una nueva legislación sanitaria?. Porque mucha gente de clase media se quejaba que les cortaban el seguro si estaban desempleados, los costos de los seguros se incrementaban constantemente, existían mas de 10 millones de americanos no asegurados, porque se propiciaba un marcado déficit presupuestal federal, porque los beneficios eran solo para las grandes empresas aseguradoras pero no para el público ordinario. Pasar esta legislación significa para Obama mantener su poder politico y pasar a la historia. La victoria fué lograda con el apoyo de los antiabortistas demócratas bajo la promesa de no usar fondos federales para realizar abortos.

La nueva ley da al gobierno un nuevo y mayor rol en el sistema sanitario americano, mejora la calidad de vida de millones de americanos, añade 16 millones de nuevos asegurados al Medicaid, subsidia con 938 billones de dólares durante 10 años cobertura privada para gente de bajos recursos, amplia la cobertura de salud a mas empleados, so pena de pagar una penalidad. En areas estatales donde no exista cobertura de seguros pueden crearse aseguradoras privadas que se atengan a canones estatales. El aseguramiento podría alcanzar a unos 9 millones de inmigrantes ilegales. La American Medical Association y la industria farmaceutica respaldaron la nueva legislación. Entretanto los republicanos no se dan por vencidos, esperan mientras despliegan nuevas estrategias.
