Health Care for Us All 
challenges the common belief that health care problems in theUnited States are difficult and possibly insoluble. Americans want to get more fortheir health care spending, including insurance coverage for everyone that is patient-centered, portable, and permanent. In addition to these two goals, they want a sys-tem that respects incentives for high-quality care, exhibits a responsible approach tothe budget, and is sustainable.
Health Care for Us All 
adopts these five objectives andapplies an efficiency filter to identify the virtually unique framework that meets allobjectives. Impediments to achieving Americans’ goals can be summarized under therubrics of too little insurance, too little income, and too little properly functioningmarket. The efficient remedy for each is the subject of the book.
