The Change of Role Model, Health Care

Filed under: Uncategorized — Keynes @ 6:53 pm

Last weekends, the House of Representatives passed the health care bill which has been a major legislative action on President Obama’s top priority. I, personally, congratulate the U.S. citizen who could get the nearly universal health care system within 10 years. Although the bill is including considerable tax increases, the right to being health is essential for everyone without any condition.

In addition, I have been happy to hear the news that the bill passed because of the attempt by my home country’s administrations. As a matter of fact, Korea has had universal health care system since 1980s. However, after the current President Lee Myung-bak got elected, he and his party have been trying to change the health care system from government-owned to be privatized for maximizing its profits. They have recognized the health insurance system of the United States as a role model to apply to the country.

Now, the role model is in the middle of the huge change. I am hoping that the government of Korea will be awakened of their receding thought.
