The Transformation of American Liberalism

George Klosko

Oxford University Press

Continuation of the struggle for national health insurance. Bill Clinton’s attempt to reform national health insurance, a cause taken up by Barack Obama, who in large part succeeded with his Affordable Care Act, passed in 2010. A major theme of the chapter is how the aim of universal health insurance, and so serving the poor, came to be overshadowed by the need to address abuses in the health insurance system and the concerns of the middle class.

Keywords:   national health insurance, Bill Clinton, Barack Obama, Affordable Care Act, Medicare, Medicaid
