National Review;9/2/1977, Vol. 29 Issue 34, p978
The article focuses on the political developments in the United States. U.S. Vice President Walter Mondale had proposed a number of electoral reforms. But none of these reforms have been implemented. U.S. President Jimmy Carter had promised to draft a plan for a comprehensive system of national health insurance. Government officials now say privately that it is unlikely that any such comprehensive plan will be drafted before mid-1978. The government has revised the plan to put a cap on hospital costs.
