How do private insurance companies dominate health care in the US, making it much more costly than other industrialized nations? Mimi Signor, of Missourians for Single Payer, Jan Rodolfo, of National Nurses United, and host Don Fitz contrast promises of candidate Barack Obama when he was running for President to what he proposed once he was in office. They explore some of the problems with the “individual mandate” in Obamacare of 2010 and how those issues could be resolved with a single payer program.
