Wellness For The Real World – HEALTHCARE REFORM 101: IS SICKO CURED?


Michael Moore’s 2007 documentary on America’s healthcare system, Sicko, chronicled a well-insured couple who lost their home and were forced into bankruptcy due to medical bills. Can this still happen in the new world of America’s healthcare reform? This week’s guest is JD Daskalakis, attorney, economic expert and lobbyist, who gives an in-depth look. He also explores the myth versus the reality of lobbying, and explains what special interest groups do (you’re part of at least one yourself).
