PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla., July 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Edmund L. Valentine presents how your healthcare, personal finances, and America's future will be positively or negatively affected by U.S. healthcare legislation and regulation.  Healthcare is a skyrocketing >$6 trillion global opportunity that can revitalize the United States economy and put it on a long-term growth path.  However, politics is putting America's ability to capitalize on healthcare at risk.  Misinformation, funded by well-financed vested interests, is changing the political debate, causing political polarization, fostering economic uncertainty, and impeding economic recovery.

Valentine says, "The healthcare argument goes beyond our medical system.  It has education, taxation and immigration implications.  If U.S. healthcare is not properly addressed, the United States will continue its decline – properly addressed, U.S. healthcare will become a flourishing economic sector which will fuel economic prosperity, create high-paying jobs, and raise our standard of living.  Furthermore, it will do this by capitalizing on industries where the United States already is the global leader.  Industries that are beginning to lose jobs to other countries."  

"Healthcare - Will U.S. Politics Kill Our Opportunity?": 1) presents the global healthcare opportunity, 2) makes the argument of why U.S. healthcare, if not fixed, will destroy the middle class, 3) outlines what is required to fix healthcare, 4) discusses why the political dialog on U.S. healthcare is wrong, and 5) presents the questions that should be addressed by President Obama, Governor Romney, United States senators and congressmen, and state representatives before anyone votes for them – the questions each of us should be asking of them.
