We all need to know more about Obamacare, the Affordable Care Act, so let's get together and pool our ignorance! Seriously, I will bring a couple of videos, showing both the good and the completely crazy messages being floated out in the interwebs, in the hopes of gaining a more complete understanding of where healthcare is heading in the coming years. We all need healthcare, some more than others, and this critical system is, in my opinion, practically in free-fall at this time. Prices are spiraling out of control while many operations, procedures and medicines are at best a waste of money, and too often fatal. Healthcare reform isn't just about money; we need dramatic improvements in quality and we will need to be making some very hard choices in the coming decades. Healthcare is rationed now by how much money americans make; is that the best we can do? I think we can do much better than we have been doing, but powerful forces are working overtime to stop Obamacare. Show up, learn something, and debate!

 

Please bring snacks to share!
