American Healthcare Debate Misses the Mark

" By Carl Gibson, Reader Supported News 04 January 14 he real healthcare debate in this country shouldn’t be focused on insurance, but on the fundamental causes of the outrageous costs of healthcare and why even basic health insurance is unaffordable for millions of Americans.
