The Politics of Health Care Reform

OK class—last time we discussed the need for health care reform.  Now we are going to have a lesson on the politics of health care reform.

Click HERE for a chart that shows (1) how much money every US senator, by state, received from HMOs and the health insurance industry last election cycle and (2) the state by state growing gap between health care premiums and median wages over the period 2000-2007.

There are even review questions to make sure that you are paying attention!
