Wendell Potter was a health care executive for over twenty years. Today, he’s telling us exactly what we’ve always suspected about the health care “industry” and why reform is needed now.
Too much discourse has gone on about the deeds and misdeeds of those within the very powerful, political, and influential members of this industry.

The health care industry, more than any other, has taken the level of greed and corruption to an entirely new level. Which is why we need reform now. Please support the President’s drive to reform health care, including a public option.
