John Green, author and co-creator of vlogbrothers, shares the bitter pill that is the current state of the American health care system:

His prognosis: “It is not a simple problem. There will not be a simple solution. … And it’s vital that we grapple with it meaningfully instead of just treating health care costs as political theater.”

Still not sold?

Green dissects how/why folks SHOULD get a bigger piece of the health care pie — but often don’t — in this slice-and-dice of capitalism:

“Career decisions should be about finding the place where your talents meet the worlds’ needs. Not about finding the place where you can get health insurance,” he warns.
