In the United States, the healthcare debate has swirled for decades as politicians, pundits, and citizens try to find a solution to the ongoing question of how best to meet the public's need for quality medical care at affordable prices. The introduction of new programs over the course of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries set a precedent for minimum levels of care. Despite these programs, millions remain uninsured across the country. This collection of essays will interrogate the debate on healthcare, providing students with a wide-ranging look at the competing ideas, policies, and viewpoints that intersect on this important issue.
