Dr. Paul Song: Obamacare is not the progressive answer

The healthcare reform advocate discusses where the Affordable Care Act falls short and what can be done.

Radiation oncologist and activist Dr. Paul Song has long been an outspoken critic of the current state of healthcare in the United States and of politicians who align themselves with insurance and pharmaceutical companies. Song served as a surrogate during Bernie Sandersí presidential run. Song tells Robert Scheer about the many ill patients he has seen go bankrupt because of high healthcare costs. Song details how the Affordable Care Actís did not go far enough with controlling costs and left millions uninsured, including undocumented immigrants. And while the healthcare system needs strong reform, he is encouraged by the next generation of doctors entering the field.
