ABSTRACT
The author reflects on universal health care coverage in the United States. He suggests that while many people suggest that the U.S. should do without universal health care coverage in order to make way for programs that can stimulate the economy, 2009 is the right time to establish universal health care coverage because it can play an important role in growing the economy. He argues that a smart health care reform bill can improve both individual health and the health of the U.S. economy.
