Library Cards And Libraries
Dr. Claudia Fegan, a former president with Physicians for a National Health Program and chief medical officer at John H. Stroger Jr. Hospital, discusses pros and cons of the Medicaid expansion under the Affordable Care Act. While some hospitals will finally be paid for the great numbers of uninsured people they normally treat, it will be difficult, if not impossible, for many individuals to find practitioners willing to treat them, the metaphorical equivalent of giving someone a library card to go to a library with no books in it. An expanded and improved Medicare for All system would still be the best and most affordable way to provide quality health care to the whole country. To not only give people library cards, but libraries with books to check out. More here at Physicians For A National Health Program.
