Health Care Reform

Newdealhealth100_150_1 Leif Wellington Haase has published a new book advocating reform of our health care system.  He is a fan of mandatory private health insurance.  The abstract for the book states,

U.S. spending on health care has grown from $246 billion in 1980 to $1.7 trillion today. At the same time, the number of uninsured Americans has increased by 5 million over the past decade. These factors, along with concern over the quality of care, have brought the need for health care reform back into the headlines. A New Deal for Health offers a plan for these much-needed reforms, one that focuses on creating large risk pools while still allowing consumer choice and maintaining high quality care.
