Policy Proposal: Through managed competition, Tsongas
hopes to reduce health care costs. He would encourage
competition within the health care industry, allowing
consumers to choose their providers. His plan also would
provide coverage for unemployed and part-time workers.
Problems: The upfront cost, $8 billion, is among the
lowest of all the proposals. The program would be funded
through a 6 to 8 percent payroll tax on business. However,
the thought of increased taxes is usually enough to kill a bill.

And America's need for affordable health
care will continue to grow. In 1988, 440,000
Americans age 45 and over required long-
term health care. By the year 2000, it is
estimated this number will increase to
500,000, and by the year 2020, the number
will have tripled to 1.5 million, according to
a study done by the Alabama Gerontological
Society. All of this will put our present
health care system under an incredible
strain.
"One of (the AARP's) top priorities is to
reform the nation's health care system,"
Bobrow said. "Many people end up
spending their life savings on medical care,
leaving spouses and children to cope with
the aftermath."
The situation is critical and getting worse.
"The problem is at the national level,"
said Ed Charles, a medical economist and
research professor of medicine at the U. of
Alabama at Birmingham School of
Medicine. "We are on schedule to end up
with some catastrophic problem, and
legislation will have to be passed before
anythingmeaningful will be done.
"Unfortunately, whoever becomes
president in 1992 will not be able to do
anything," he said. "Our (present health
care system) is set until around the turn of
the century."
Bobrow, however, is more optimistic.
"In the last eight months there has been
acceleration toward reform," he said. "I
don't have a crystal ball, though, so I don't
know when Congress will finally act."

Register to vote
or stop whining
By GREG KLEIN
The Auburn Plainsman, Auburn U.
Too bad registering for classes isn't
as easy as registering tovote.
"Young people sometimes think that
they aren't ready to be in the
mainstream," said Juanita Eber,
president of the Atlanta/Fulton
County League of WomenVoters.
"But youth is always the redemption
of a country because they are the
future," Eber added. " Therefore, it is
important for them to vote as early and
as often as they can."
You can't vote, however, unless you
register.
While places to register vary by state,
the most consistent place is the county
courthouse. You must register in the
county in which youwillvote.
Two factors that vary are how long
you must be a resident prior to
registering and how far in advance of
the electionyoumustregister.
Thirty days is the standard for both,
but some states don't require you to
meet either until the day of the
election.
If you have registered previously but
didn't vote in the 1988 election, you
should call your local courthouse to
make sure you're still registered.
Chances are you won't be. All but
nine states have procedures for
purging registrations of people who
fail to vote.
