Our guests, James Turner and Dr. James Gordon (with their deep backgrounds in the politics and policy issues in this unprecedented 2009 U.S. debate), examine and critique what is happening today. This show tackles head-on the amazing total neglect of ‘health’ in the entire debate which is 100% focused on ‘payment and illness’—not on how to maintain or restore your own health; or how to improve it; or how the system can maximize the public’s health. We expose the real exaggeration used daily by some, or other politicians, that the U.S. has ‘the best healthcare system in the world’. We discuss the absence of appeals: to citizen responsibilities; incentiving the training of general practitioners we desperately need; and the indefensible use of technological excess, based on direct TV/radio advertising to customers.
