Our Journey Forward on Occupational Medical Care

President Barack Obama
On Tuesday, the American people expressed its support for a unified medical care program that will embrace all aspects of life, including industrial accidents and diseases.  They validated, as did the Supreme Court, the coverage afforded those who have suffered from industrial pollution such as the deadly asbestos exposures that occurred in Libby Montana (“Libby Care”).

Going forward it is imperative that a universal medical program be established to provide medical treatment for  all work-related occupational injuries and exposures. The delay and denial of medical benefits to those who suffer from industrial illness must be cured.

“America has never been about what can be done for us. It’s about what can be done by us, together, through the hard and frustrating but necessary work of self-government. That's the principle we were founded on.”
— President Barack Obama, November 7, 2012
