Commonwealth Club - The Commonwealth Club of California
No more Band-Aids or patches, says Emanuel; it's time for a complete overhaul of health care as we know it. America spends more than $2 trillion on health care, more than any other developed nation.But money does not guarantee a better system. Instead, 47 million Americans go without insurance. In addition, many people suffer poor health, and often suffer financial difficulties as a result.Emanuel offers a bold new proposal to completely restructure our system, which he says will save money, allow for choice and give all Americans health-care coverage - The Commonwealth Club of California
