It is no secret the health care system in the United States is broken. Americans pay more medical cost than any other nation at $2.7 trillion last year alone, but yet we are getting shockingly little for the money.
"Escape Fire," a new documentary airing on CNN Sunday night at 8pm ET looks at these problems in a whole new light.

U.S. manages disease, not health
The most insistent political question of the past four years has been: How can more Americans get access to medical care?
The federal response was the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. Better known as "Obamacare," it is a complex mix of insurance changes and tax credits. When the act takes effect on January 1, 2014, it will provide access to insurance to about 30 million people who currently don't have it.
Unfortunately, that was the wrong question. So the looming "answer" is wrong as well.
