Abstract

This study reexamines the national focus on health care reforms in the United States. Literature on health care reforms suggests that Mass public in the Unites States is not enthusiastic about free public health care insurance to improve the access for poor and vulnerable populations. Different opinions for attitudes toward health care reforms are presented using both classical and contemporary related literatures. Current literatures suggest that forty seven million including non-citizens are uninsured. That is, 16% of the total United States population has no health care. The four perspectives of this article evaluate the roles of Insurance Underwriters, Pharmaceutical Companies, American Medical Association, and the United States Government
