The movement for universal health care, or single payer health care in America, aims to provide a truly universal, comprehensive and equitable health care system in the United States. Rise of the universal health care movement began in the 20th century when workers in the beginning of an industrialized America faced increasing sickness and injury. Recently, more people are in favor of universal healthcare in America, citing the difficulty in time and expenses of receiving medical care in America versus other industrialized countries.
