Documentary by Terry Sterrenberg & Laurie Simons
The United States pays almost twice as much for healthcare as any other industrialized nation, yet it still does not provide care for all its citizens. While the Affordable Care Act, now facing repeal and replacement by Congress, has helped millions of people, many of us are feeling the pinch of rising costs and narrowing networks. Polls show that 58% of Americans favor a national publicly funded healthcare program. So why has the U.S. Congress not yet passed- or even considered- such a plan? This documentary delves into what single payer healthcare is, how it saves money, and what is being done in the growing movement at both the national and state levels to make it happen.
