Virtually everyone in this country has the opportunity to purchase food, shelter and clothing. Why should the purchase of health care be more complex than obtaining these necessities? Most Americans would agree that our health care delivery system is in crisis. In this easily readable book, Dr. Roger Stark provides a brief history of how we arrived at this point, the underlying cause of the crisis, the recent sweeping federal health care reform law, and the options that are now before us. In a logical fashion, he outlines the solutions to maintain the high standard of care we enjoy in the United States.
