Tonight’s Bill Moyers Journal will focus on the health care debate, featuring a substantial portion of POV’s Critical Condition, a documentary by Roger Weisberg, that was originally broadcast last October in the lead up to the 2008 presidential election. (Watch a preview.)
Critical Condition follows a group of ordinary hard-working Americans struggling to survive serious illnesses without health insurance. They discover that being uninsured can cost them their jobs, health, homes, savings and even their lives.
Watch the trailer.
Tune in tonight to see what Bill Moyers has to say about the health care reform debate in light of the stories of the people featured in Critical Condition. Log on to the Journal website to weigh in with your own experiences of American health care and share your thoughts on how you’d fix the system, or ask journalist and health care blogger Maggie Mahar questions about the national debate.
