Richard Master, CEO of MCS Industries, speaks at the introduction of Sen. Bernie Sanders Medicare-for-All SB 1804. Master has produced two documentaries, Fix It: Health Care at the Tipping Point and Big Pharma: Market Failure, both detailing the failure of U.S. health care financing that is failing the people, with costs twice as high as other developed countries, and worse health outcomes.
Master quotes Warren Buffett, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of Berkshire Hathaway: "Medical costs are the tapeworm of American economic competitiveness." He concludes that the best way to ensure the competitiveness of American business is with a single-payer health care system.
