Donna Smith, Executive Director of Health Care for All Colorado, can be heard during an interview session where questions were asked by the moderator during the first half. And, then by the audience in the second half. Her visit to Fort Collins was sponsored by Health Care for All Colorado Northern Colorado Chapter on April 3, 2013. These interviews were created by the Tim Caffrey Show for a local TV channel in Fort Collins.
During the first half of the evening she was asked several questions by Tim Caffrey, from Northern Colorado Progressives, regarding her entrance into the fight for single payer health care. You can watch how Donna Smith decided to fight the powerful Health Insurance Money machine! She spends her time discussing how and why she and her husband Larry agreed to go to Cuba with Michael Moore for her medical care.
In a heartbreaking segment she tells how American insurance companies blocked their path to obtain the health care she needed. This happens every day in every state. She shares how personal bankruptcies are more often experienced by individuals who have health insurance. She is then asked why she joined Health Care for All Colorado and Health Care for all Colorado Foundation.
One of the many points Donna makes about the flaws of our private insurance based health care system, "Health insurance is not health care. Health insurance is a financial product sold to us to protect our health and our wealth but does neither thing very well."
Throughout the video you will see “overlays” of “fact sheets” from a number of valuable sources.
