Mid-Manhattan Library

Drawing on decades of experience in health care policy, health care delivery reform, and economics, this illustrated lecture provides a non-partisan analysis of the reform and what it means for America and its future. The author shines a light on truths that have been hidden behind a raucous debate marred by political correctness on both sides of the aisle. She shows how health care reform was enacted only with the consent of health insurance companies, drug firms, device manufacturers, hospitals, and other special interests that comprise the medical-industrial complex, which gained millions of new customers with the stroke of a pen. Health care businesses in a market-oriented system are designed to generate revenue, which runs counter to affordable health care.
