Prescription for Failure: The Ills of Socialized Medicine
Bernie Sanders promises “Medicare for All,” but what does socialist healthcare really mean for patients and doctors? Nationalized healthcare systems in other countries have resulted in long wait times, shortages of care, lack of innovation and new medicines, and government control over life or death decisions.
Rep. Steve Scalise tells his story as both lawmaker and patient, followed by a panel discussion featuring medical experts and personal experiences with socialized medicine, as well as possible solutions and new models for sharing health care costs. David Schneider and Barbara Kolm discuss the serious dangers of handing our health over to the government.
