Universal Healthcare

Universal Healthcare

The U.S. is the only developed nation that doesn’t have a cradle to grave universal health care system.  Several presidents attempted to provide universal healthcare, but every attempt was defeated by industry and conservative opposition. Incremental changes have covered significant segments of the population: Medicare, Medicaid and SCHIP. In 2010 that a universal health care bill, the Affordable Care Act, was finally signed into law by President Barack Obama.
