Universal Health Insurance – implies that health insurance for everyone, not just for the ones that can afford it. It would be regulated by the federal government, so that everyone has access to care.

Universal Health Care – government-overseen health care system where medical care has nothing to do with making a profit, and everyone has access to medical attention that they need.

National Health Insurance – Not sure.

Private Health Insurance – is just as we Americans have now. Private insurance companies are like regular businesses that look for profit. Unfortunately, many times vital care is denied…

Government Health Care – this one sounds like military hospitals for soldiers, veterans, and family members.

State Health Care – don’t know this one….

Question by Cat-astrophe: How will universal health care stop foreclosures and stimulate the economy?
These two points were made by Obama in his argument for urgency in passing his health care proposals. Isn’t he robbing “Peter to pay Paul”? This plan would tax businesses more than they currently pay for employee health care.

You’re wrong about the tax burden of this new plan. Both employers and employees would save money and more people would have access to healthcare.
