All the Biggest Myths About Our Health Care System Debunked In One 7 Minute Video


If there's one thing that I've learned from Ted Cruz's faux-filibuster, it's that some people who love to argue about health care really don't know what the heck they're talking about. Whether it's claiming that the Affordable Health Act has killed jobs (it hasn't) or that the programs will cause premiums to go up (no it won't), there's no shortage of right-wing lies to debunk about Obamacare. Here are the biggest myths, debunked by America's geekiest geek, John Green.

Watch him discuss concepts like the inelastic demand for health care, why a colonoscopy does not come cheap in the United States, and why we need to stop treating health care costs as political theater. He's looking at you Ted Cruz.
