Learn about the history of the long battle over health care in America while reminding others that the health care battle has a long history.

Debates about national health insurance pre-dated World War II in Britain, Canada, and the United States.   In Britain, slow steps, beginning with the National Insurance Act of 1911, made post-war possible in the period immediately following World War II.  In Canada, reform was initiated gradually on a province-by-province basis.  In America, a divided Congress and divided Democrats in the years immediately following World War II stalled health care reform.  Only in 2010, some sixty years after this image was first created, did the American Congress pass the Affordable Care Act, a ground-breaking act which helped provide insurance to all Americans.
