"The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 (PPACA) is being spun as the answer to our problems of health care access, costs and quality. But the dirty little secret is that the reform effort has been stolen by the very corporate interests that have perpetuated and profited from these problems for years. The result is a bailout of a failing insurance industry and a bonanza for Wall Street. Most Americans and Main Street lose once again. The need for real health care reform remains urgent," said Dr. John Geyman, author of Hijacked: The Road to Single Payer in the Aftermath of Stolen Health Care Reform.

Is health care "reform" 2010 better than nothing? Dr. Geyman warns of soaring costs, no price controls, and more Americans going without necessary health care. This is our future in the aftermath of Health Care "Reform" 2010, guided by a failing industry bailed out by new government subsidies. This well-documented book charts a path to that end. Hijacked: The Road to Single Payer in the Aftermath of Stolen Health Care Reform is essential reading for anyone who wants to better understand how our health care system got this way and what we can do about it.

What they are saying about
Hijacked

"A trenchant and highly readable account of how the special interests sabotaged health reform, leading to a law that won’t provide universal care nor control escalating costs. Geyman shows us the way to real reform when the current law implodes. An eye-opening book."
–Marcia Angell, M.D., Senior Lecturer in
Social Medicine, Harvard Medical School,
former editor-in-chief, New England Journal of Medicine

"By reading John Geyman’s very timely Hijacked, those who are uncomfortable with the reform process that took place will be able to understand more precisely what went wrong. He explains why our concerns are fully warranted, but, instead of abandoning hope, he provides us with a road map for reform that will ensure that all of us will have the health care that we need."

Physicians for a National Health Program (PNHP)
