President Obama is making a final effort to get the public to push Congress to pass healthcare reform, bashing the insurance industry for predatory pricing practices. School of Management Professor Stephen Davidson, author of “Still Broken: Understandng the U.S. Healthcare System,” says the facts are on the side of reform, but the White House hasn’t made the benefits appear compelling to individual voters.
“Framing the issue as profiteering insurers against ordinary citizens who need medical care should resonate with the public. If reform fails, costs will continue to rise, more and more people will lose coverage (and no one’s coverage is safe), and quality will continue to decline.”
