Watch local medical doctors on the Laborvision television program this week, discussing  the importance of including a robust public option as part of national healthcare reform.  

This show is particularly timely, since Congress is currently debating healthcare reform, and the inclusion of a strong public option that can keep insurance companies accountable and bring down prices.  The show features two local medical doctors (Dr. Bill Fogarty and Dr. Fred Rottnek) along with Tim Greaney of the St Louis University Center on Health Law.
