“For-profit health insurance is the largest con job ever perpetrated on the American people – one that has caused trillions of dollars and millions of lives since the 1940s,” says Thom Hartmann.
In this interview Thom Hartmann offers a deep dive into the shameful history of American healthcare, showing how greed, racism, and oligarchic corruption led to the current “sickness for profit“ system. Modern attempts to create some kind of government healthcare have been hobbled at every turn – including Obama care, which Hartmann regards is basically a sellout to the health insurance industry.
There is a simple solution: Medicare for all. Thom Hartmann will describe the extraordinary benefits it would provide the American people and economy and the steps we need to take to make it a reality.
It is time for America to join every industrialized country in the world and make healthcare a right, not a privilege.
Thom Hartmann is a progressive national and internationally syndicated talk show host. Talkers magazine named him America’s most important progressive host and has named his show one of the top ten talk radio shows in the country every year for over a decade. A four-time recipient of the Project Censored Award, Hartmann is also a New York Times bestselling author of thirty-two books, translated into multiple languages.
