Health Care Reform Problems and Solutions
While the new "Affordable Care Act" has made significant strides to a better and more affordable health care system, it still falls far short of a perfect health care system.
The biggest problem with the current American health care system is the fact that it is based almost entirely on an employer-based for-profit model.
