Manufacturing Dissent Since 1996
New interviews throughout the week

Journalist Trudy Lieberman examines the failed promise of the Affordable Care Act.


We are replacing a crisis of un-insurance with a crisis of under-insurance, and we’re going to find people with very high deductables and very high cost-sharing as the years go on, because we haven’t controlled the underlying cost of care.

Journalist Trudy Lieberman breaks down the key failures of the Affordable Care Act – from a failure to control healthcare costs to serious gaps in coverage and funding – and explains why Obamacare is an obstacle, not a starting point, for universal healthcare.

Trudy wrote the Harper’s report on Obamacare, Wrong Prescription?
