Timothy Faust – Health Justice Now

Single payer is the tool – health justice is the goal!

Single payer healthcare is not complicated: The government pays for all care for all people. It’s cheaper than our current model, and most Americans (and their doctors) already want it. So what’s the deal with our current healthcare system, and why don’t we have something better?

In Health Justice Now, Timothy Faust explains what single payer is, why we don’t yet have it, and how it can be won. He identifies the actors that have misled us for profit and political gain, dispels the myth that healthcare needs to be personally expensive, shows how we can smoothly transition to a new model, and reveals the slate of humane and progressive reforms that we can only achieve with single payer as the springboard.

In this impassioned playbook, Faust inspires us to believe in a world where we could leave our job without losing healthcare for ourselves and our kids; where affordable housing is healthcare; and where social justice links arm-in-arm with health justice for us all.

I have a friend of a friend who was the subject of a chapter in this book, so I thought Id give it a try. Health Justice Now was totally worth it. Its incredibly well-researched and well-written; I feel better equipped to talk about the state of the American healthcare system. More importantly, Im inspired to fight for the changes that we so obviously need. Everyone should listen to or read this book.
