Quotes-start.png "The Obama plan will make preventative services affordable by eliminating co-payments and deductibles for preventive services in Medicare. The plan lowers seniors' prescription drug costs and brings savings to Medicare. By eliminating wasteful overpayments to private plans under Medicare and creating new incentives for coordinated, high-quality care across the health care spectrum, reform will extend Medicare's trust fund solvency."
