Health Care for Us All challenges the common belief that health care problems in the
United States are difficult and possibly insoluble. Americans want to get more for
their health care spending, including insurance coverage for everyone that is patientcentered, portable, and permanent. In addition to these two goals, they want a system that respects incentives for high-quality care, exhibits a responsible approach to
the budget, and is sustainable. Health Care for Us All adopts these five objectives and
applies an efficiency filter to identify the virtually unique framework that meets all
