The article presents the author's reflections on the management of the U.S. health care system. Broad criticisms are leveled at the system as a whole, citing its inconsistencies regarding cost and provision coverage. It is suggested that the ideological basis of the system has yet to be articulated, pointing out the non-financial basis of the problem. Calls to promote and transition to a unified national system are given.
