Health Care Reform

I urge anyone who reads this to listen to any interview with Wendell Potter. The most comprehensive and easily accessible is this Bill Moyer's interview.

Why are we trusting Wall Street with our health care? After the housing crisis and ensuing recession, why are we still allowing these businesses to literally attempt to and commit murder? Do you really want CEOs determining how much your life is worth?

WENDELL POTTER: The industry has always tried to make Americans think that government-run systems are the worst thing that could possibly happen to them, that if you even consider that, you're heading down on the slippery slope towards socialism. So they have used scare tactics for years and years and years, to keep that from happening. If there were a broader program like our Medicare program, it could potentially reduce the profits of these big companies. So that is their biggest concern.

Single payer.

Pass it on.
