If you are confused with the health care issues today, this book will clarify matters about Universal Health Care and the single payer option. Rep. John Conyers, Jr., sponsor of HR 676 wrote the foreword and this book supports his bill in Congress. TEN EXCELLENT REASONS FOR NATIONAL HEALTH CARE explains how we got into a health care crisis and how a single-payer system would work. It answers many questions like: What is the cost? Will we have the same high-quality health care that we have now? Will I be able to choose my own Dr. and make my own medical decisions? The many contributors to this book have long histories in the health care field. I found the book very valuable reading. There is a short synopsis of what a single-payer system of health care would be like. In clear, concise language it explains how a single-payer program works, why is is most cost-effective, and affordable to the most people, and the most advantageous plan for the consumer. I would recommend this book to anyone who is confused over the health care controversy.
