According to Hartmann, "For-profit health insurance is the largest con job ever perpetrated on the American peopleone that has cost trillions of dollars and millions of lives since the 1940s." In The Hidden History of American Healthcare, the latest title in his popular "Hidden History" series, Hartmann reveals how and why attempts to establish affordable universal healthcare in the United States have been thwarted and what we can do to finally make it a reality.
Hartmann offers a deep dive into the shameful history of American Healthcare, showing how greed, racism, and oligarchic corruption lead to the current "sickness for profit" system. Modern attempts to create some kind of government healthcare have been hobbled at every turnincluding Obamacare, which Hartmann regards as basically a sellout to the health insurance industry.
Instead, he offers a simple solution: Medicare for all. Hartmann describes the extraordinary benefits it would provide the American people and economy and the steps we need to take to make it a reality. It is time for America to join every industrialized country in the world and make healthcare a right, not a privilege.
