Description

Rather than a health system, the US has put its faith in a so-called marketplace in which the few profit from the public's ill-health. Health Care Revolt looks around the world for examples of health care systems that are effective and affordable, pictures such a system for the U.S., and creates a practical playbook for a political revolution in health care that will allow the nation to protect health while strengthening democracy.
