Missourians for Single Payer invite you to see: Inequality for All
Inequality for All is a 2013 documentary film in which Robert Reich, former Secretary of Labor under President Clinton, shows us the widening income inequality, currently at historic highs, and explores what effects this increasing gap has not only on the U. S. economy but also on American democracy.
What is a good society and what role does the widening income gap play in the deterioration of the nation's economic health? Although America is the wealthiest country in the world, we continue to fight to keep our earned benefits, Medicare and Social Security, the backbone of our social safety net.
Our poor suffer more and die sooner than in other industrialized country. Health insurance premiums are to increase by 20-40 percent, while out of pocket costs, co- pays and deductibles for care will also increase. Meanwhile, health insurance companies CEOs’ annual compensation ranges from $66.1 million (United health Care) to a puny $8.1 million (Anthem). "The choice ahead for us is a private health insurance monopoly or single payer."...Robert Reich
