Dangers of Healthcare Insurance Reform

When a young U.S. President first put forth a proposal to reform healthcare insurance, some favored a public run plan. Others insisted that private insurers would offer the best plan. A national poll showed that 54% of Americans felt that a government run plan would be "a big step toward socialized medicine." Sometime later, 62% of Americans favored the government plan. It was enacted into law in 1965. It's called Medicare.
