Back to the Health Care Future

Conrad F. Meier –
November 14, 1996

In this short policy brief for Heartland, Conrad Meier asserts that the efforts of the Clinton administration marks the beginning of a new thrust for complete government regulation, if not outright control, of health care. The banner likely will be carried by Health and Human Services secretary Donna shalala, who will be assisted by a twenty-member commission comprised of the same "consumer advocates" who just two years aho sought to eliminate consumer choice in health care.
