United States: Health care, health care, health care. In all actuality, everything has been said in connection to this landmark bill. Are most confused? Most likely. After all, a 2,000 page document is certainly not going to be released to the public, let alone taken upon most of us to read. Therefore, we are given two sides to the story. For conservatives, it will cause us a substantial more amount of debt, diminish the amount of medical professions, herald socialist principles. For liberals, it means a substantial decrease in debt (over the years), an increase in medical insurance for more than 32 million Americans, and the best alteration for the medical world since the creation of Medicare and Medicaid.
