What Makes Health Care Such a Divisive Issue

Dr. Ezekiel J. Emanuel explains how the Affordable Care Act reforms are reshaping the health care system. He also looks at why health care in America has become such a divisive social issue and why reform has bedeviled presidents of the left and right for more than a century. Dr. Emanuel is a professor of medical ethics and health policy at the University of Pennsylvania and served as a special adviser to the White House on health care reform. He’s the author of  Reinventing American Healthcare: How the Affordable Care Act Will Improve Our Terribly Complex. Blatantly Unjust, Outrageously Expensive, Grossly Inefficient, Error Prone System.
