Reforming Our Nation's Health Care System — Americans will spend over $2 trillion on health care this year and that number is only growing. This translates into $6,700 in health care for each individual, more than twice the amount allocated by any other country. Even with such a large investment, more than 40 million Americans still do not have health insurance and an additional 25 million Americans have inadequate health care coverage. Such high costs jeopardize the economic well-being of millions of Americans. As President Obama recently noted, an American goes bankrupt every 30 seconds because of high health care costs and by the end of 2009, almost four million foreclosure notices will have been sent to homeowners in danger of losing their homes.
