Currently Reading: 10 Excellent Reasons for National Health Care

TITLE: 10 Excellent Reason for National Health Care
AUTHOR: several authors but edited by Mary E O'Brien and Martha Livingston

YEAR PUBLISHED: 2008
PUBLISHED BY: The New Press





So far, I have only read the foreword, which is written by U.S. Representative (from Michigan) John Conyers, authors of HR676 (The United States Health Insurance Act); the introduction (which was written by the 2 editors); and the 1st chapter, which was written by Martha Livingston PhD (Associate Professor of Health and Society at the State University of New York College).

So far seems like an interesting book that sets out to show why national health care is a good idea and to debunk the common myths about national health care.

Here is a quote that shows up on the front page:
"Of all the forms of inequality, injustice in health care is the most shocking and inhumane." -- Martin Luther King Jr.
