Professors Marmor and Oberlander examine the state of health care reform in the United States. The authors briefly discuss the failed Clinton health plan before examining the return of health reform to the political agenda. They then focus on alternatives, such as a federalist option, the pincer movement, and a single-payer system. Finally, the au-thors highlight the lessons that can be learned from previous attempts to enact comprehensive health reform.
