Nurses Say Pandemic Underscores Need for Medicare for All

A new study shows that huge hospitals in the US are retailing healthcare at a huge mark-up on cost. Where is that profit going? Not towards healthcare. That’s certain.

Marissa Lee joins Thom Hartmann to explain that patients are stopping going to hospital because they can’t afford it. Then, they become seriously ill and many die. The mark-up of care at 18 times cost, is killing people – for profit.

Marissa Lee is a Nurse Leader – National Nurses United.
