Health care and politics 14 MIN, 56 SEC

In Washington, healthcare remains one of America’s most divisive issues.  We’ll get a preview of this year’s congressional election campaigns. Republicans will be railing against Obamacare, while some Democrats push for a  new plan called, “Medical Extra for All.” Meantime, we’ll look at the starkly different options from red states to blue states. We’ll ask, can billionaires Warren Buffett, Jeff Bezos and Jamie Dimon come up with a better solution to keep healthcare costs down, as they’ve claimed?

Health, not health care 21 MIN, 51 SEC

In his new book, “How Healing Works,” Dr. Wayne Jonas says we’re good enough at treating serious illness--after it’s happened. Now it’s time for a change. We can cut costs by focusing on prevention, reducing the need for expensive medicines, high-cost technology and intrusive operations.
