Myths, Lies, and Downright Stupidity: Get Out the Shovel - Why
Everything You Know Is Wrong Hosted by Rebecca Hagelin Vice
President, Communications and Marketing, The Heritage Foundation If
you believe that the problems, complaints and failures of America's
health care system can be solved by the government, then think
again. Join us as consumer advocate and bestselling author John
Stossel examines the myth of a government solution to health care -
a myth that parallels the many examples of myths, lies and
downright stupidity he's taken on before. From consumer cons and
health myths to organ selling and parenting, his investigations
bring to light America's bullies and beat them at their own game.
Learn what you should and shouldn't be skeptical about, delve into
the research behind the questions and answers, and allow yourself
to become a more informed citizen.
