Universal Health Care

What the United States Can Learn from the Canadian Experience

“Clear and comprehensive. . . . Essential reading for anyone concerned about the current health care crisis in the United States.” —Bookwatch

Polls show Americans increasingly unhappy with our health care system. Yet for nearly thirty years, our next-door neighbor has had a universal, public health insurance system that its citizens hail as their favorite social program. So why can’t it happen here? Universal Health Care explains how it can.

Clear and convincing, Universal Health Care shows that health care can be funded from the public purse without eliminating choice and without bankrupting government, and it proves that a public, single-payer system can deliver high quality care at much less cost to many more people than one based on market forces.
