Medicare for all!

Dr. Garrett Adams testifies to the impact that Medicare made on the populations it served when it was first implemented in the 1960s, and makes a case against medical privatization and for expanding Medicare for all. Rather than an essential feature of public management, it's suggested that private interests seeking to profit off the delivery of medical care are what create obscene bureacracy and high costs.

Dr. Adams is president of Physicians for a National Health Program and specialist in pediatric infectious epidemiology.
