I have been following and writing about health care policy for almost a decade, and I feel this new series I've produced for Shadowproof is the summation of everything I learned. It at least touches on everything I have learned about how to make universal policy work.
Most importantly, it addresses the political dynamics that are killing, bankrupting, or creating financial strain for countless Americans. The major problem with health care policy is not figuring out what works. We know what works, by looking around the world. The problem is convincing politicians to do the right thing when the industry is spending millions to convince them to keep our system broken but profitable.

You can find part two here: Road To Single-Payer: Understanding Different Universal Health Care Systems
It should be around five parts in all, with one part published each week here.
