Description

"I have some bitter disappointments as President," reflected Harry Truman after leaving office, "but the one that has troubled me the most in a personal way, has been the failure to defeat organized opposition to a national compulsory health-insurance program." Harry S. Truman versus the Medical Lobby by Monte M. Poen examines proposals for national health insurance from 1914 to 1965 focusing on Truman's efforts during his presidency.
