Yes We Can!
There was a comparison of the two candidate's health care plans, written by the organization Doctors for Obama, highlighting the differences between them in terms of diabetes care. To tell you honestly, I didn't read the McCain part because it's written by a partisan group and probably not entirely accurate. I did read the Obama side because this is the plan that would ideally be put in place some time in the next four years. I feel like the most significant differences, and the most valuable if Barack Obama and his team can really make this happen, are payment for preventative health services and the inability for insurance companies to penalize patients with chronic illnesses - such as diabetes - with higher costs for coverage.
