ABSTRACT
The article reports on the promise of Democrat lawmakers in the U.S. to make health care coverage a top political agenda in an effort to gain public support in the 2008 presidential election. Democratic presidential candidates including Senator Hillary Clinton, Senators Barrack Obama and John Edwards hope to help uninsured Americans by a combination of public and private solutions. However, single-payer solutions advocates argue that private insurers are part of the problem and not the solution.
