Im talking about the 9/11 first responders – the police officers, firefighters, and volunteers who rushed to the rubble to look for survivors – and spent days, weeks, and months at ground zero recovering bodies and cleaning up the rubble. Those men and women are today dealing with sickness – unaware at the time that the air they were breathing at Ground Zero was toxic. Cancers, heart problems, and respiratory problems continue to plague the first responders today – and tragically – have led to the deaths of as many as 1000 of these brave Americans. A year and a half ago – Congress passed the James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act – to give sick first responders the healthcare they deserve for serving their nation. It was a hard fought victory just to get the bill passed – as Republicans in the House opposed it – with even Vice Presidential candidate Paul Ryan voting against it. But passing it was just the first battle – the next battle for responders was proving that the cancers and illnesses they suffer from were indeed caused by the toxic rubble at ground zero.

Remedy and Reaction: The Peculiar American Struggle over Health Care Reform

Remedy and Reaction: The Peculiar American Struggle over Health Care Reform

In no other country has health care served as such a volatile flashpoint of ideological conflict. America has endured a century of rancorous debate on health insurance, and despite the passage of legislation in 2010, the battle is not yet over. This book is a history of how and why the United States became so stubbornly different in health care, presented by an expert with unsurpassed knowledge of the issues.

Tracing health-care reform from its beginnings to its current uncertain prospects, Paul Starr argues that the United States ensnared itself in a trap through policies that satisfied enough of the public and so enriched the health-care industry as to make the system difficult to change.

He reveals the inside story of the rise and fall of the Clinton health plan in the early 1990s—and of the Gingrich counterrevolution that followed. And he explains the curious tale of how Mitt Romney’s reforms in Massachusetts became a model for Democrats and then follows both the passage of those reforms under Obama and the explosive reaction they elicited from conservatives. Writing concisely and with an even hand, the author offers exactly what is needed as the debate continues—a penetrating account of how health care became such treacherous terrain in American politics.
