Turning Legislation into Action

Uploaded by USHealthReform on 23.03.2010

Welcome to HealthReform.gov.
The passage of health insurance reform legislation was a historic victory for the American people.
The bill that Congress passed will strengthen health insurance for all Americans by ending
the worst practices of insurance companies.
It will make health insurance affordable for the middle class and small business owners
with one of the largest health care tax cuts in history.
It will rein in soaring premiums with the broadest package of health care cost-cutting
policies ever adopted.
And it will put our economy on a more stable path by bringing down our deficit by
$100 billion over ten years and almost $1 trillion over the next ten years.
But our work is not finished. As President Obama has said, we also have a solemn responsibility
to implement these reforms effectively.
As we begin to turn the legislative language into policy, our guiding principle will be
the same principle as at the heart of health reform: giving Americans more control over
their health care choices.
That means we’re going to keep you updated every step of the way.
We’ll have an easy-to-use website where you can find out all the benefits for your
family. And we’ll be conducting weekly briefings to update you on what’s going to happen
We’ll also be traveling around the country to answer Americans’ questions and help
them understand how to take advantage of the new opportunities that will be available to
For the last year, a lot of the health care debate has been about what people in Washington
are doing.
Now, as we move ahead to implement reform, we’re committed to giving Americans the
options, information, and resources they need to make their own choices about how to keep
their families safe and healthy.
