During the 19th century, many new states were added to the original thirteen as the nation expanded across the North American continent and acquired a number of overseas possessions.
After long debate, this was supplanted by the Constitution of a more centralized federal government in 1789.
Two of the major traumatic experiences in the nation's history were the American Civil War ( 1861 - 65) and the Great Depression of the 1930s.

 Competition, cooperation, or control? Tales from the British National Health Service -- Le Grand 18 (3): 27 -- Health Affairs
The British National Health Service (NHS) recently underwent a massive social experiment, inspired in large part by the ideas of U.S. experts.
After reviewing the evidence concerning the impact of this experiment, I conclude that the impact in fact was minimal, partly because of the retention of central government control and partly because the experiment was based on an inadequate understanding of professional and managerial motivations.
The paper draws out general lessons of the experiment for other market-oriented health care systems and examines whether the lessons are reflected in the new batch of NHS reforms initiated by the recently elected Labour Government.

 British Medical Journal: As I recall - National Health Service 50th anniversary
During the early years of the service many complaints were recorded in the journals, of inappropriate demands for medical care--particularly out of hours--of unrealistic expectations of patients, and of the regulations covering certificates for sickness benefit and the need for prescriptions for eye tests, corsets, and similar items.
The terms and conditions of service precluded any radical initiatives to improve the service, but a spirit of inquiry was everywhere, and early research into the content of general practice was beginning to provide facts on the basis of which general practitioner care could be developed.
The one great financial benefit that the service conferred on many general practitioners was to relieve them from the burden of bad debts and the need to employ debt collectors.

The British Health Service continues to announce that the official list of those waiting for care is shrinking.
There is no doubt but that disabled Americans would be a lot more impatient regarding their desire for prompt quality service than our British cousins.

There is no limit to the amount of goods and services people want to consume, but there is a limit to the amount of resources available to produce these goods and services.
When health care is not rationed by price, people are encouraged to use however much they might like because there is no perceived cost to them.

 Donald W. Light, Ph.D., responds on the increased funding for the British National Health Service: Physicians for a National Health Program
Health policies that the members of the AMA leadership support include tax credits, MSAs, shifting costs (risk) to individual patients, multiple health plan products (multi-tiered benefits), and eliminating the employment link for health insurance.
We accept that employment rates will never be 100%, and, likewise, we should accept that health insurance coverage will never be 100%.
There are serious problems in implementing all this, but the design and vision are worth serious attention by anyone interested in a population-based, community-centered model of health care like that envisioned in the Dawson Report of 1920.

The public's satisfaction with Great Britain's National Health Service, usually surprisingly buoyant even in the face of cuts and shortages, has plunged in the past two years, a new Mori poll conducted on 2,000 adults for the British Medical Association says.
The number of people satisfied with the health service is now 58 percent compared with 72 percent in 1998.
The proportion of people who were "very satisfied" fell from 24 percent in January 1998 to 13 percent last month, and the proportion who were "fairly satisfied" fell from 48 percent to 45 percent.
