Publisher's summary

Today’s deliberations about a revamped health care system are stuck and in need of fresh analysis and a new vision. Health Care Revolt sets out to provide just that and at a most propitious time in US history.

Dr. Michael Fine’s manifesto frames the questions more expansively than others before him and offers an impassioned road map for a nation confused about which healthcare direction to travel. 

The crux of Dr. Fine’s argument is that the US has put the fate of its healthcare in the so-called marketplace, where the few profit from the public’s ill health and accelerate the erosion of democracy in the process.

Health Care Revolt looks around the world for examples of healthcare systems that are effective and affordable, pictures such a system for the US, and creates a practical playbook for a revolution to protect health and strengthen democracy.

We don’t have a US Health System!

We have a failed marketplace for Health Services in the US. We’ve built a market place for Health Care Profiteers to extract maximum wealth from suffering human beings in our 57 US jurisdictions…and the commercial health care vampires are plump with our gold and silver.

A public good has been perverted into pernicious private gain.

In the US, we lack a Health System that provides universal Primary Care, that builds individual, family, and community health resilience, and that delivers the necessary educational baseline for all citizens to practice wise self care.

Unregulated capitalism literally uses the latest behavior modification techniques to convince us to poison ourselves and then pay outrageous fees in an attempt to undo the harm.

It’s a 10–15–20 year process to change this dismal situation. Michael Fine, MD, argues we can do it, He maps out a feasible execution plan and he suggests we begin now.
Today.

Dr. Fine is the author and the voice of this audiobook; it’s a 3.5 star audio experience but the soundtrack coneys the message effectively at 1.1 to 1.2 times faster than real time on your audiobook player. His passion and his conviction for Health Care for All come through loud and clear.

The overall content is very solid and it is a very well informed *5 star* analysis.
