Today, President Elect Obama announced former Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle as his choice for Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services and Director of the new White House Office on Health Reform.
In his remarks, Secretary-designate Daschle appealed to Americans to play an active role in health reform by signing up to lead a health care discussion – a series of meetings everyday people are hosting, in which they’ll gather ideas and report back to the Transition’s Health Policy Team. The team will then incorporate the results into its recommendations for the Obama-Biden administration.
We have ordered a moderator kit from the Change.gov web site, in order to facilitate the discussion. We want to gather the thoughts of the community about what is broken in the US Health Care system and how do you think it can be fixed. We will then summarize the discussion and share it with the Transition’s Health Policy Team, which in turn will combine it with other results into its recommendations for the Obama-Biden administration.
- What is broken in the US health care system?
- How do you think it can be fixed?
Note: The link to this discussion has been submitted along with our request for a moderator kit: let’s please keep the discussion on topic without getting into partisan arguments.
P.S. Although this is a topic that most likely US members will be interested in participating in, regardless of where you live and where you were born, if you have something useful to contribute to the discussion, please do.
