5. "No AMERICAN, should ever have to worry about being able to get treated"

Unfortunately, nothing in the Insurance Profit Protection Act guarantees that a person will be able to get care. As more and more Americans get saddled with high deductible, "consumer driven" policies they are finding that, despite paying premiums they still can't afford to see a doctor because the out of pocket costs are too high.

The U.S. remains a country that allows it's citizens go bankrupt because of medical bills (despite having "coverage") and where thousands die each year because they could not access care in a time to save their lives.
