Source Notes (11): The Partisan Divide– The McCain and Obama Plans for U.S. Health Care Reform

Title: The Partisan Divide– The McCain and Obama Plans for U.S. Health Care Reform

Summary: This article was written in August of 2008, before President Obama was elected, so again, this website discusses the different point of views about the health care reform from both McCain and Obama.

Topic: Universal health care

Category: Academic Research

What is it?: An online article about health care from the New England Journal of Medicine.

Accessed: February 15, 2009

Support:

John McCain, senator; Barack Obama, president; University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill; Washington DC: Congressional Budget Office (CBO);

Obviously McCain and Obama were discussed throughout the entire article, explaining the differences they both have with health care plans; The author, Jonathan Oberlander, Ph.D., is an associate professor of medicine and of health policy and administraion at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill; The CBO discusses the budget and economic outlook of the future years in congress.

Audience and Agenda: The New Engand Journal of Medicine is a prestigeous and well-known academic journal that is published weekly and owned by the Massachusetts Medical Society. The content of this site is intended for health care professionals and students alike.

Usefulness: The New England Journal of Medicine is a weekly general medical journal that publishes new medical reasearch findings, review articles, and editorial opinions on a wide variety of topics having to do with health care. There are hundreds of articles to read about with my social issue from this academic journal, so I found this website to be very useful.
