‘Outrageous’: 46 Million Americans Say They Would Not Be Able to Afford Healthcare If They Needed It
Abstract: Dr. Vikas Saini, president of the Lown Institute think tank, told The Guardian on Wednesday that "unfortunately, it's not surprising that millions of Americans can't afford healthcare." "It is, however, shocking and kind of outrageous," Saini added. "Our system has been structured for many years on the basis of private health plans and very deep dysfunction politically and within the medical industry. Americans have been facing this mammoth problem. It was there during, and looks like it's going to be after, the pandemic... Americans want, and need I'd say, a radically better healthcare system."
