S&P Equity Research expects the President to work to repair some of the partisan discord that broke out during his initial attempts at reform, and we expect his efforts at reform to focus on areas of common agreement and populist discontent.  Given our view there is broad agreement among the parties about three broad points – the need to slow the pace of growth in health care expenditures, the desire to eliminate waste and inefficiency in health care, and a preference for instituting quality measures – S&P Equity Research expects more modest reforms over time.  Among areas we see most ripe for accord include: elimination of annual and lifetime insurance benefit limits; restrictions on denial of coverage due to pre-existing conditions; the creation of purchasing mechanisms for self-employed and small businesses to give them access to coverage at group rates; incentives for use of electronic health records (HER); and increased covera
