Win Affordable Health Care

Problem: While the 1990s are likely to see the adoption of universal health care coverage, most proposed plans would finance this new coverage by unfunded taxes on future generations.

Solution: Any fair health care reform must include a "youth-friendly" financing mechanism that is based on your ability to pay, not your age or your benefit level.

Detailed Proposal

See Revolution X, by Rob Nelson and Jon Cowan, pages 144-147. I will put this proposal on-line soon.
