Single Payer Health Insurance
David Ball, Healthcare Specialist, will explore what is dysfunctional about the healthcare system in America. How it can be improved depends on how it is financed. Thirty-two of the top post-industrialized nations provide healthcare to their citizens; the exception is the United States. Our speaker will look at the Affordable Care Act, socialized medicine and the Single Payer plan.

Come and hear her reflections on that day as well as her insights into the increasing role of women in SC government.
