Supreme Court Health Care History
FILE - In this photo taken in 1912 Theodore Roosevelt campaigns for President. Roosevelt champions national health insurance and tries to ride his progressive Bull Moose Party back to the White House. It's an idea ahead of its time; health insurance is a rarity and medical fees are relatively low because doctors cannot do much for most patients. But medical breakthroughs are beginning to revolutionize hospitals and drive up costs. Roosevelt loses the race. (AP Photo/Brown Brothers)
