Health care is shaping up to be the most important domestic policy issue of the 2008 President Election. More that twelve years after the political failure of the Clinton health care plan, Americans seem eager for the Federal government to revisit the issue in a broad based manner. The states have been acting on their own, with Republican governors spearheading plans that have upset many conservative health policy analysts. Is America�s hybrid system the best, or worst, of government and private health care? How do we balance the desire for cost containment and innovation? How can the system sustain the increasing demands that baby boomers will place upon it?
