Bill Moyers Journal
May 9, 2008
In this weeks BILL MOYERS JOURNAL, Rose Ann Demaro, the Executive Director of the California Nurses Association, argued that calling America’s approach to health care a “system” is innaccurate.If you look at health care in America, there is no health care “system.” There’s a health care industry thats major objective is profit-making — which means not providing the patient all of the care that they need, discharging patients early, patients without insurance being treated differently than wealthy people, frankly. And that is the health care “system” in America. Those who can afford it get to live and those who can’t suffer needlessly.
