Comparative Analysis between Different Administrations
After World War II, President Harry S. Truman attempted the first health care reform and proposed
a plan for universal health insurance coverage to Congress, which was to be governed and paid for by
a National Health Insurance Board. While trying to get this plan to pass, it was shot down by the
congress immediately due to a lack of support. Again, after multiple times, including a second attempt
in 1948, the proposal for universal health insurance coverage failed to scale through once again. Even
though the Truman administration’s efforts were denied, its plan to increase the number of hospitals
was accomplished. The plan was successful because of the Hospital Survey and Construction Act of
1946 and the Hill-Burton Act. This law helped hospitals by lending federal grants and loans to expand
and renovate hospitals. President Truman believed that the United States needed to improve its health
care by having more medical professionals. The rural and underserved areas were in need of doctors
at the time, so he tried to attract physicians by offering federal funding. He also tried to improve these
areas by providing government funds to build medical facilities. The last push Truman did was to
create the board of doctors and public officials. These groups created standards that new hospitals
had to meet in order to ensure the quality care for the patients.
President Truman can be credited as the first president of the United States that attempted health care
reform during the post-war era. On the historic day of November 19, 1945, President Truman
proposed a new health care program to congress to create a national health insurance fund that would
be managed by the federal government. The President at that time alleged all Americans should have
health care coverage and that it should be considered a basic human right. He demanded that everyone
should have access to doctors and nurses regardless of location, family income or social status. He
was determined to implement changes in the health care system in United States. Consequently, he
devised a plan to tackle five crucial problems. He recognized the lack of health care professionals in
poverty stricken areas as one of the issues. These communities were so poor, they could not afford to
pay for health care and consequently doctors could not afford to stay. As a result, he suggested the
use of federal funding to persuade doctors to relocate to these low-income areas. The second issue
has something to do with the unbearable conditions of hospitals found in rural counties as a national
problem. To solve this problem President Truman proposed the use of federal funds to construct new
hospitals throughout the country. In addition, he proposed creating a new law that would enforce
strict standards for hospitals and health centers.
The third issue goes hand in hand with the previous ones stated. It called for the creation of a board
of doctors and public officials to be responsible for implementing standards of quality in all hospitals.
The Fourth and last plan were the most controversial one of all – the proposal for the National Health
Insurance that would offer monthly payments to its participants; which would then cover any of their
future medical expenses and the government paying the cost of services to doctors involved in the
program. Unfortunately, Truman and his staff were viewed as “followers of the Moscow party line”
by the American Medical Association (AMA). The bill suffered massive ridicule and the public did not
buy into it. Thus, causing President Truman to abandon the bill and nothing was passed. Even though
he was not been successful in getting the health care proposal passed, he brought attention to and
highly promoted the issue of health care.
Overall, the federal government has been working on health care reform longer than the public can
truly comprehend. In a way, each administration played a role in the Patient Protection and Affordable
Care Act (PPACA) that we see today. Each administration affected this Act including the Kennedy
Administration. The Kennedy Administration led the country from 1961 to 1963. This was about two
decades after the baby boomers were born. President Kennedy’s democratic administration came right
after President Truman (1945-1953) and then President Eisenhower (1953-1961) who were
Democratic and Republican, respectively.
