The health care system in America is in tatters. More than 47 million adult Americans are without health care coverage - 25 million children do not have health care, and this is the richest nation in the world. Dr. Kerns says, "If I was in control I'd like to see universal, single payer system for America which would essentially be Medicare for everybody. Not only would we have everybody covered, but we'd have everybody covered by the most just and efficient mechanism, and it's being paid for by the government." In this informative dialogue he describes in simple terms the roots of the problem, and provides an abundance of ways to move towards solution. (hosted by Michael Toms)
