This edition: Healthcare Isn't Big Business Or Big Philanthropy! - Ben Palmquist & Dr. Steffie Woolhandler

Episode Details

First aired: March 23, 2018.

US healthcare is still in crisis. Over thirty million Americans remain uninsured, and even more are sickened by sky-high insurance costs. This January Jeff Bezos, Warren Buffett and Jamie Dimon announced that they were banding together to form a new healthcare... entity. It'd be premature to call it a plan. The men from Amazon, Berkshire Hathaway and JP Morgan say their whatever-it-is will be will be "free from profit-making incentives and constraints." but remember, we're talking about three experts when it comes to making profits. While the Congress seems hopelessly sunk in a partisan fight over the Affordable Care Act, and Bernie Sanders Medicare for All bill is nowhere near becoming law- even though it's more popular than ever, might Big Business offer a way out? Joining me are - Ben Palmquist of the National Economic and Social Rights Initiative and Dr. Steffie Woolhandler from Physicians for a National Health Program, to unpack all this and more.
