Bill Moyers | The Journal: Considering Health Care Reform | PBS

Duration: 49:37 (Full Program)
Program: Bill Moyers Journal #1345
Broadcast Date: Mar. 5, 2010

After months of lobbying, grandstanding and political theater, Americans are wondering if there's any real reform left in the health reform bill. Bill Moyers sits down with former insurance executive turned public health advocate Wendell Potter, who argues that all is not lost in the healthcare bill and details what he likes about the legislation.

Then, Moyers speaks with single-payer advocate Marcia Angell on why she thinks the debate over reform needs a fresh look at the economics and delivery of the care promised in the bill. Wendell Potter, a former executive at CIGNA, is a senior fellow at the Center for Media and Democracy. Marcia Angell, the first woman to serve as editor-in-chief of the New England Journal of Medicine , is a senior lecturer in the department of social medicine at Harvard Medical School.
