I like this and he does a good job. But, he misses some major points. Examples: We need to separate coverage from your job, we need to remove the middle man (insurance companies), we need to stop the insurance, drug companies and other for profit medical corporations from lobbying and funneling money to elected officials and we need to face how much of our money is going to cover administrative cost (and here I don't mean just the insurance company skimming so much off the top) in doc offices and hospitals just to deal with all the different 3rd party billing system. Hospitals need to all be non-profit and they need to be reimbursed based on a budget, not line item billings. What the hospital offers needs to be determined via real needs in that community and not based on the profit driven competition.
