In 1992, health care reform was one of the major issues in the presidential election. In 1996, you barely hear a mention of it. In fact, the only presidential candidates who’ve been talking seriously about health care reform are third party candidates like the Green Party’s Ralph Nader who calls for a single payer system and John Hagelin of the Natural Law Party who questions the disease care model in this country that emphasizes high tech intervention instead of preventative medicine. As more Americans experience the limitations of our health care system, more and more people are turning to alternative therapies, most of which are not covered by health insurance.
