THE CONTINUING QUEST FOR HEALTH REFORM
Where are we today on reforming health care and what are we to do? Even after surviving Congressional assault, the Affordable Care Act is being undermined by the Trump Administration and alternatives such as single payer (“Medicare for All”) seem remote. Should we fight to save and improve what is good in the ACA? Should we work to replace the ACA with single payer or other alternatives? How do citizens organize to resist assaults on the provision of health care and how can they advance this basic human right?
