I'm featured in the new Reason.tv video, "How to Fix America's Health Insurance Crisis: GET SOME."
Interestingly, you can see both of my offices in this video: my CSUN office (at 2:45) and my FRINGE office (at 3:59, right above the Hustler store).
I think the video makes this pretty clear, but it's worth emphasizing again: there are real problems with the current healthcare system, and there are genuinely needy people who can't afford health insurance. The point is that we shouldn't exaggerate the issue. The "45 million uninsured" figure certainly overstates the problem. Besides including people who could afford insurance if they wanted to, that figure also includes people who are only transitionally uninsured (that is, they had insurance recently and will soon have it again), as well as people who could be covered by existing government programs if they just signed up. Also, lack of health insurance is not synonymous with lack of healthcare.
