iPol: Dodd Rolls Out Health Care Plan, Looks to Private Sector for Universal Coverage

Excerpted from this post at iPol

Senator and presidential candidate Chris Dodd rolled out his health
care proposal today at a "kitchen table" campaign stop in Marion,
Iowa. Details of the plan, as released by the Dodd campaign, are:
'Universal HealthMart. The Dodd plan will create a health insurance
marketplace called the Universal HealthMart that is based on, and
parallel to, the Federal Employees Health Benefits Plan (FEHBP).
Individuals and businesses will pay for coverage within Universal
HealthMart based on their ability to pay. If a person or business is
unable to pay for insurance, the government will subsidize their
premium share on a sliding scale based on income. Universal HealthMart
will offer a variety of comprehensive plans and entitle every American
to the same benefits and types of plans as Members of Congress.
Universal Affordable Coverage. Under the Dodd plan, coverage will flow
automatically to all Americans regardless of their employment status,
health status or economic means.'
