Radiation oncologist and activist Dr. Paul Song has long been an outspoken critic of the current state of healthcare in the United States and of politicians who align themselves with insurance and pharmaceutical companies. Song served as a surrogate during Bernie Sanders’ presidential run. Song tells Robert Scheer about the many ill patients he has seen go bankrupt because of high healthcare costs.
