Health Insurance - US - April 2009
Reforming the U.S. health care system has been on the top of politicians’ agendas for decades and is finally seeing some real focus by President Obama and his administration. Problems with the system abound, from the high cost of services, to the technical inefficiencies of the system, to the 46 million Americans who are at this time uninsured.
