Description

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act – or “Obamacare” as its opponents refer to it – is either the greatest piece of social legislation in the history of the United States or an abomination inflicted on the American public that will ultimately destroy our health system. Stanley Hupfeld dissects that health system and exposes the fallacies and prejudices of both political parties. Hupfeld explains that, if we are willing to make hard choices, we can indeed cover the uninsured, control costs and not bankrupt the country.
