Health reform and Harry Truman.

As students in my health law class know, the current health care woes of the U.S. are part of a familiar pattern, dating back to the beginning of the 20th century. By the time Harry Truman became president, he was sufficiently concerned that he included universal health care coverage in his first message to Congress. A story in today's Lawrence (Kan.) Journal-World is a nice reminder of Truman's worries for our system and the similarities between then and now.
