James Morone on Rotten Secrets of Healthcare Reform
Dr. Richard Miller interviews James Morone, co-author of the new book, "The Heart of Power: Health & Politics in the Oval Office". This timely and compelling book, subtitled "The 8 Dirty Rotten Secrets of Healthcare Reform," explains how presidential actions ultimately determine either the success or failure of healthcare reform. James Morone is Chairman of the Political Science Department at Brown University.
Also participating in the exchange is Jeff Kane, MD, who argues that the current healthcare debate has nothing to do with healthcare. He contends that the debate is all about economics. Dr. Kane is a practicing physician and Director of Psychosocial Education at Sierra Nevada Cancer Center in Grass Valley, California and authors the lively blog Healthcare As Though People Matter.
