Dean Baker Interview — Podcast October 1, 2012

The Affordable Care Act: What It’s Really All About. Progressive economist Dean Baker, co-founder and co-director of the Center for Economic and Policy Research, returns to Democratic Perspective to discuss the details of the Affordable Care Act, otherwise known as Obamacare: Who it will cover, how it will be financed and managed, and what parts of it still remain problematic. He explains the reasons for the mandate, how the insurance exchanges will work, and why the subsidies will make it affordable for Americans with lower incomes. An excellent overview, and and an even better antidote to the nonsense that the scaremongers of the right are saying about the most important expansion of medical coverage since the introduction of Medicare.
