Last spring, after congress passed sweeping legislation to reform our nation’s health care system, the editorial board of the New York Times wrote: “Just as Social Security grew from a modest start in 1935 to become a bedrock of the nation’s retirement system, this is a start on health care reform, not the end . . . The process has finally begun.” One of the key voices in that process will be Philip Bredesen, who served as governor of Tennessee from 2003-2011. In Fresh Medicine—the first book to address this reform—Bredesen delivers a concise, intelligent analysis of what the reform is, how it is flawed and why we have to fix it.
