Why is Now the Time?  We’ve seen enough to know that insurance-based healthcare is not effective for keeping costs down and giving everyone access to needed medical care.​  Advocates are totally committed to changing the healthcare system, and polls indicate that the general public supports the idea of universal healthcare.  So it should be a no-brainer, right?  Well, no.  Some of the obstacles are obvious.  Big money.  Fear of government.  But there seems to be something more, like a fog that keeps people from moving forward together.  What is so difficult about the idea of looking after each other?  This documentary delves into what single payer healthcare is, how it saves money, and what behind-the-scenes heroes are doing to clear the fog of misperception that keeps us from moving forward.
