Dr. Margaret Flowers and Healthcare Reform


Dr. Margaret Flowers & Healthcare Reform As the current administration's health care reforms begin to take effect there are many political pundits who are pushing back against what they say are overly large and expensive programs. But they are not the only folks who don't see the reforms as a panacea. There are thousands of doctors and many more U.S. citizens who think the reforms don't go far enough. A leading voice of that contingent is Dr. Margaret Flowers. She has testified in Washington that Medicare should be extended to all citizens and that a single payer plan is the only way to fix spiraling health care costs. Dr. Flowers joins us to explain.
