After months of lobbying, grandstanding and political theater, Americans are wondering if there’s any real reform left in the health reform bill. Bill Moyers sits down with former insurance executive turned public health advocate Wendell Potter, who argues that all is not lost in the health care bill and details what he likes about the legislation. Then, Bill Moyers speaks with single-payer advocate Marcia Angell on why she thinks the debate over reform needs a fresh look at the economics and delivery of the care promised in the bill. Wendell Potter, a former executive at CIGNA, is a senior fellow at the Center for Media and Democracy. Marcia Angell, the first woman to serve as editor in chief of the New England Journal of Medicine, is a senior lecturer in the department of social medicine at Harvard Medical School.
