Media Advisory: Stanford Podcast Says Government-run Health Care Is Not The Solution



PALO ALTO, CA (ASRN.ORG)- Former Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle and Stanford University's Victor Fuchs agree on one key aspect of health-care reform: President Obama should scuttle the public agency option.

Fuchs, PhD, one of the nation's foremost health economists and the Henry J. Kaiser Jr. Professor, Emeritus, says a government-run plan will not solve the huge financial issues that plague health-care in America. Fuchs recently outlined his perspective in an article titled, "The proposed government health insurance company: No substitute for real reform."

Fuchs discusses how the current health-care system functions, what its major problems are and what reforms are needed to solve them in a podcast.
