Host Don Marsh talks with Dr. David Ansell about his proposal to reform healthcare by fixing Medicare and providing it to all Americans. Dr. Ansell is the Senior Vice President for Clinical Affairs and Chief Medical Officer at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago. He is also the author of “County: Life, Death and Politics at Chicago’s Public Hospital."
Physicians for a National Health Program in St. Louis are sponsoring talks by Dr. Ansell:
Medicare has been a recurring topic of contention in the race for Illinois’ 12th Congressional district. Democratic candidate Bill Enyart introduced himself to senior citizens in East St. Louis to discuss his stance on the issue.
As this was the first time many of the senior citizens had ever seen Enyart, he took the time to link his name to a candidate that’s popular in the area.
