Obama's proposals rely heavily on government and mandates to make coverage affordable.

· Coverage would be mandatory for children.

· Offer an income-based federal subsidy for people who don't get insurance from an employer or qualify for government plans like Medicaid.

· Create a national network of public and private plans for those without other access to insurance.

· Require employers to either offer a plan, help pay for employee costs or pay into a national health care network.

"...We need to pass a plan that lowers every family's premiums, and gives every uninsured American the same kind of coverage that members of Congress give themselves." -- Obama*
