FEATURING TIMOTHY FAUST – The movement for a single-payer healthcare system in the US has been organizing for years but only in the past 2 years has it gained steam after relentless Republican attacks on Obamacare. A majority of House Democrats have now signed onto a bill that would establish a Medicare-for-All system in the US.

But skepticism still abounds, even within the Democratic Party. Critics consistently insist that a Medicare-for-All system will cost too much without taking into account all the costs – including profits – that the current system eats up. At this critical moment in the fight for healthcare for all Americans we turn to a timely book, Health Justice Now: Single Payer and What Comes Next.

Timothy Faust, writer and journalist with expertise in healthcare and a single payer system. He has written for Splinter News, Jacobin, and Vice and is author of the new book Health Justice Now: Single Payer and What Comes Next.
