Excerpt From 'The Truth About Getting Sick in America: The Real Problems With Health Care and What We Can Do'

A doctor weighs in on the morality of the American health care system

Tim Johnson, M.D., spent more than a quarter-century reporting on medical breakthroughs and the latest clinical developments for ABC News. Over the past decade, during his tenure as chief medical editor for the network, Johnson became increasingly concerned about Americans having trouble receiving, and affording, health care. He began to realize that he, as well as most Americans, did not realize how costly and complicated the whole system had become and was troubled by how much inaccurate information permeated the airwaves. He decided to report on health care, just as he had on medical discoveries for years. Now, stepping away from his role as an impartial newsman, Johnson — who is also an ordained minister — offers his candid opinions for the first time in a new online book. In this excerpt from The Truth About Getting Sick in America, he tackles the question of whether the nation has a moral obligation to provide health care to everyone.Back to Article
