June 24, 2015

Journalist Trudy Lieberman, explains why opponents and supporters of the Affordable Care Act are both spreading myths about the ACA. Is Obamacare unaffordable for many middle class consumers? Debating the costs of healthcare. How many families are choosing to take the penalty because the costs are to high?

Why we need full universal healthcare coverage. And why coops in the healthcare market may end up failing.
