Dr. Margaret Flowers on Single Payer & SCOTUS Decision

This page and podcast are produced and paid for by Tell Somebody.

Is the Supreme Court decision on the Affordable Care Act cause for celebration?  Is Chief Justice John Roberts deserving of praise for a wise decision and an avoidance of the appearance of partisanship?  Most reasonable people agree that the ACA is an improvement from the previous status quo, even if it still leaves millions uninsured and keeps putting too much money in the pockets of insurers and other for-profit interests.  If this really is the best we can do in current political reality, what does that say about our acceptance of that "reality."

On the July 3, 2012 edition of Tell Somebody, Dr. Margaret Flowers of Physicians for a National Health Program, Healthcare-Now, & It's Our Economy gave her views.
