JAMA Editor in Chief: Health Care is a Right

Dr. Howard Bauchner, in a laudable JAMA editorial, wrote that “health care is a basic right for every person, and not a privilege to be available and affordable only for a majority.”

And yet, I was left hoping for more.

I wonder if Dr. Bauchner and other medical leaders would consider endorsing Physicians for a National Health Plan, which advocates for single-payer national health insurance.
