When discussing the health reform issue, it may soon become apparent that the concerns of individuals are diverse and influenced by various values and ideologies. For some the matter of healthcare reform is morally wrong because they view it as an unconstitutional and unlawful imposition. For others, healthcare reform is morally right because it will provide the benevolence and caring attention for those who desperately need it. Regardless to how ethical healthcare reform may be, any such reform will have a definate impact on the economy. The concern is whether the economic impact will be for the good or whether this reform will cause great financial hardship. And finally, there are those who see the discussion of health care reform as yet another strategic move in the game of politics. It is no secret that controversy motivates voting more than the desire for a working government. For now, the battle is on for politicians to use public interest regarding healthcare reform in order to build the power and postion that they hope to gain. The question remains, "How can addressing Health Care concerns result in a "win, win" outcome for America?"
