Drawing from new book Health Justice Now: Single Payer and What Comes Next, activist and author Timothy Faust makes the case for a single-payer, government-run healthcare system that assures all Americans of medical coverage. Critics decry the cost. He argues that our country should address healthcare as a human right, paying for it the same way we do for roads and police and fire services.
