The Faces Of A Broken System

Filmmaker Austin Considine has begun a great video series at True Slant letting individuals tell their story of navigating through a broken health care system. These stories leave no doubt that something must be done to change a trajectory of bankruptcy, suffering, and denied care that is a moral outrage, to say the least.

Considine promises more stories like this. And millions of Americans are going through something similar on a daily basis. With health insurance plans rising and the cost burden increasingly shouldered by the individual policyholder, that number will grow. We cannot continue in this way. It may work for insurance company CEOs, but it does not work for people.
