Health policy is moving closer (in distinct increments) to a broader role in healthcare, and public health insurance can take many forms. What do you envision the government’s role to be (e.g., a continued regulation on specific aspects or a more sweeping policy that leads to public health insurance)?  In your comments distinguish between state and federal policy.

Healthcare is such a large public good with substantial governmental and societal investment.  There is disagreement about what direction healthcare policy should go but the basic objectives have been consistent-contain costs, improve quality and access.  For the class, why do you think there is such a lack of consensus in how to achieve those objectives?  Is there any way that healthcare and healthcare policy can be stabilized, notwithstanding the political climate?
