healthcare-etfsThere are several health care reform plans on tap that the Obama administration has proposed. These plans will cost trillions of dollars that United States does not have. If the US government decides to print more money in supporting these plans, you can protect yourself.

Marc Lichtenfeld from Contrarian Profits Reports “Despite the President’s popularity, he’s not likely to get everything he wants. Some sort of compromise is to be expected. One thing we can assume is that the cost of any health care reform plan – regardless of whose it is – will be a 13-figure number (i.e. more than $1 trillion).”

Lichtenfeld goes on to explain some ways to protect and profit from this plan. Lichtenfeld points out the “UltraShort 20+ Year Treasury ProShares (NYSE: TBT): This ETF is not for the faint-hearted. It seeks to perform at twice the inverse results of the Lehman Brothers 20+ Year U.S. Treasury Index. So if the Index drops 5%, TBT should rise about 10%.”
