Politics and equity in policy-making for the medically uninsured

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A sizable number of Americans (many of low income) lack health insurance, and their ranks grew over the 1980s. One might expect to find vigorous political efforts to redress this inequity. In fact, conflicting normative and practical images of equity have blunted the sense of urgency of the problem, inhibited agreement on the proper division of labor between the market and government, and blocked consensus on strategic models for public policy for the uninsured.
