As an American who has lived abroad for decades, I've had the chance to experience single-payer systems firsthand. I did a TV interview in Manhattan a few weeks ago, laying out in plain language the problems with the current US system and how ideas from abroad can help. I have cut this interview (entitled "Beyond Sicko: What you really need to know about health-care reform") into four short parts and put them up on youtube.

This is an overview of the series: (5:31 minutes)

Beyond Sicko: Part 1 covers the WHO study putting USA at #37 internationally and how ideas from other countries can benefit the US health-care system. (7:18 minutes)

Beyond Sicko: Part 2 looks at preventive medicine, the power of US pharmaceutical companies and questionable choices of the Obama administration and the Senate Finance Committee.

Beyond Sicko: Part 3 looks at questionable choices of the Obama administration, US military spending and the whole issue of socialism. Some action tips are given. (5:33 minutes)

Beyond Sicko: Part 4 looks at employer-based insurance, the single-payer system, HR676 and preventive medicine. Action tips are given.

Feel free to post or share these videos anywhere! I'd like to counteract some of the misinformation flying around regarding health-care reform.
