IN THE NEWS: How incremental healthcare reforms built the industries we’re fighting today (Part One)
There’s a common joke among single payer advocates that America’s healthcare system is not a “system” at all, in that its pieces don’t function or connect to each other particularly well, and that it has come together relatively ad-hoc, rather than being intentionally designed.

Inaction is Unacceptable: Demand Senators Pass a #PeoplesBailOut NOW
