The Healthcare Albatross around our Necks

Below is a good, short excerpt from the longer documentary I linked from yesterday’s article — good for those with little time to spare. It focuses on the issue of how our inefficient, unaccountable, overpriced, profit-driven healthcare system is an albatross around our business sector’s neck, a point I used to make long before it became popular to promote universal healthcare. It is, in fact, only the particular profiteers within the healthcare market who see profit in this awful system of ours. They leech off everyone, including their fellow plutocrats in other industries. In the meantime, they make many of us working class people suffer and die:

(Note: home of both the short clip and the full documentary is the site Fix It Healthcare At The Tipping Point, a site where you also can get active)

The site’s own summary blurb: “This documentary takes an in-depth look into how our dysfunctional health care system is damaging our economy, suffocating our businesses, discouraging physicians and negatively impacting on the nation’s health, while remaining un-affordable for a third of our citizens.”
