Paul Starr’s compact but thorough Remedy and Reaction is an unofficial companion volume to his Pulitzer Prizewinning 1982 book, The Social Transformation of American Medicine. The new book would be livelier if it didn’t confine itself to policy. His long, wonky trail begins in the Progressive Era, when, contrary to Obama’s claims, Washington did not debate health insurance during the presidency of Theodore Roosevelt.

Paul Starr neatly ties together the impact of the Clinton fight for reform, the influence of that fight on the 2008 election .

Paul Starr neatly ties together the impact of the Clinton fight for reform, the influence of that fight on the 2008 election, and how it became a major campaign issue. Regardless of the results of the legislative challenges and the court fights, Remedy and Reaction elevates our understanding of the historical picture of the health care debate. The issue will be in court in the summer of 2012 and that will surely have an impact as to which candidate will get elected to the Presidency on November 6, 2012.

This book is a history of how and why the United States became so stubbornly different in health care, presented by an expert with unsurpassed knowledge of the issues.

Tracing health-care reform from its beginnings to its current uncertain prospects, Paul Starr .

Tracing health-care reform from its beginnings to its current uncertain prospects, Paul Starr argues that the United States ensnared itself in a trap through policies that satisfied enough of the public and so enriched the health-care industry as to make the system difficult to change. He reveals the inside story of the rise and fall of the Clinton health plan in the early 1990s-and of the Gingrich counterrevolution that followed.

Tracing health-care reform from its beginnings to its current uncertain prospects, Paul Starr argues that the United States ensnared itself in a trap through policies that satisfied enough of the public and so enriched the health-care industry as to make the system difficult to change.

He reveals the inside story of the rise and fall of the Clinton health plan in the early 1990s—and of the Gingrich counterrevolution that followed. And he explains the curious tale of how Mitt Romney’s reforms in Massachusetts became a model for Democrats and then follows both the passage of those reforms under Obama and the explosive reaction they elicited from conservatives. Writing concisely and with an even hand, the author offers exactly what is needed as the debate continues—a penetrating account of how health care became such treacherous terrain in American politics.

This is a succinct and subtle exploration of the long-time debate over nationalized healthcare in the U.S. and about why "Hilarycare" lost and "Obamacare" was enacted. The fundamental problem, which Starr calls the "policy trap", is that important segments of society get enough out of a woefully inefficient system to resist, and to be suspicious of, any reform. The deductibility of health insurance premiums by employers and nationalized healthcare for the elderly via Medicare means that the most important voting blocs in society do well under the system without really appreciating the ridiculously high cost of what they are provided. Middle class people with jobs and senior citizens vote -- and they are invested in the status quo.

Starr also probes into the darker side of American society -- the tolerance of suffering by others rationalized by the notion that I earned what I'm getting. Unlike any other advanced Western society, Americans question the right of citizens to get some minimum level of healthcare. And the polarization on this issue has gotten worse -- e.g., Starr cites polls showing that the percentage of Republicans who agreed with some such right has fallen from 37% to the low double digits.

While Starr does not espouse an explicitly Marxian message, the implication of his argument is that the healthcare debate is simply class warfare by other means. The political branches protect, respond to, and even subsidize the economically powerful in society, while the dispossessed are frozen out, and then are blamed for their own predicament (in American mythology all can be obtained by effort and hard work, so if you can't provide healthcare to your family it's only because you're not applying yourself). The healthcare debate brings together all the contradictions of the American character and sets the stage for a raw battle between the haves and the dispossessed in an increasingly polarized economy and society.

Whether or not you agree with Starr's progressive-left point of view, his recounting of the history of reform and the still uncertain future of that reform is excellent.

The United States has the most complicated and expensive healthcare system of any modern western industrialized nation. We also have the highest percentage of the population that goes uninsured. Why is this? In his book, Starr explained how we go to this point and why it has been so difficult to fix.
The efforts to reform healthcare in this country is nothing new. There have been various efforts and reforms since the New Deal era and other than a few notable exceptions, such as Medicare, Medicaid and prescription drug benefits that target certain segments of the population we have failed to cover everyone. Starr argues that it is these very reforms that doomed the efforts to broaden medical coverage to even larger segments of the population. By covering certain constituencies such as the elderly, children and the very poor while leaving others uncovered the American people were divided into different groups with very different personal interests when it coms to health care. Those that are already covered want to maintain the status quo for fear that their benefits will be impacted while those that are not covered are to few and political powerless to influence policy while at the same time driving up care for the covered through emergency care. Add to this the various interests from doctors, hospitals, and drug manufacturers and the nature of our legislative process and you get a history of thwarted reform.
In addition to giving the history of healthcare in the U.S., Starr does a very good job of explaining The Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) and putting it in the context of the previous 70+ years of attempts and failures to reform. Starr does a good job of putting a dense and confusing topic in the proper historical, political, and social context and then explaining it in a way that a layman can understand. While he definitely comes to the issue with a particular perspective (he played a part in President Clinton's healthcare reform efforts) he takes pains to give the perspective of both sides.

I bought this book for a class on the history of health system in the US and enjoyed it very much. If your interested in this book check out Starr's book Remedy and Reaction about the health policy of the Affordable Care Act and the context in which it was passed and strategies used to pass the legislation. This book describes the policy climate and strategies used to pass the legislation, it's very unique and influences what the bill sought to do regarding the provision of health care for Americans. If your interested in this book check out another of Starr's book, The Social Transformation of American Medicine. Also, check out his Ted Talk, American Struggle over Health Care Reform on youtube .

Paul Starr lists the many failed attempts at health care reform in American history.
He explains why they failed and describes some of the benefits included.
The author also gives detailed insight into the political landscape and circumstances that led to failure, particularly in the Nixon and Clinton eras.

This is a partisan book but the author, I think, stayed civil while writing about the conservative strategies and figures on that side of the aisle.

Very good reading and well written.
I came away with a better understanding of the Affordable Care Act and why health care reform has been so hard to achieve.
