According to the President, the health care act ensembles, the core principle that everybody should have some basic security when it comes to their health care. (Stolbergamp.Pear, 2010). He is of the opinion that this law is what several generations of American people were looking for to vitalize their life with a new sense of hope. He also establishes the point that this bill would bring out the economic inequalities present in the US society, the first of its kind since its inception in the society, three decades back. Apart from the proposed health benefits, the act has to offer, on the political front, it is an important bill for strengthening the president’s rule over the country. Its success, on the political front, would put Obama’s administration on a better perspective among the opposition party as well as to the people of America. Organizations like Plan Parenthood, Health amp. Human Services are of the opinion that the law would make way for affordable prescription drugs and it would make the services to be a person-centered approach where the required doctors could be seen from a single place instead of running around several places to meet separate doctors. Canada offers one good example of a health care system that has been universal in its approach, providing health care to all its citizens in an efficient way. It works in such a way that the public funds act as the major sponsors for the health care system, with minor contributions from the private sector. (Maddox, 2010). Several politicians, statespersons, and attorney generals are of the view that this act has set the US in the right course of action to provide a universal health care system, similar to that of Canada and other countries like France, Japan, and Norway. As Obama said, several generations have waited for such a reform and hence their proposition is to reap the fruits of this act immediately by enacting the law. The act was signed on March 23, 2010, and was immediately put into action.
