Obama called for Congress to pass legislation reforming health care in the United States, a key campaign promise and a top legislative goal.[170] He proposed an expansion of health insurance coverage to cover the uninsured, to cap premium increases, and to allow people to retain their coverage when they leave or change jobs. His proposal was to spend $900 billion over 10 years and include a government insurance plan, also known as the public option, to compete with the corporate insurance sector as a main component to lowering costs and improving quality of health care. It would also make it illegal for insurers to drop sick people or deny them coverage for pre-existing conditions, and require every American carry health coverage. The plan also includes medical spending cuts and taxes on insurance companies that offer expensive plans.[171][172]
On July 14, 2009, House Democratic leaders introduced a 1,017-page plan for overhauling the U.S. health care system, which Obama wanted Congress to approve by the end of 2009.[170] After much public debate during the Congressional summer recess of 2009, Obama delivered a speech to a joint session of Congress on September 9 where he addressed concerns over his administration's proposals.[173]
On November 7, 2009, a health care bill featuring the public option was passed in the House.[174][175] On December 24, 2009, the Senate passed its own bill—without a public option—on a party-line vote of 60–39.[176] On March 21, 2010, the health care bill passed by the Senate in December was passed in the House by a vote of 219 to 212.[177] Obama signed the bill into law on March 23, 2010.[178]
