Investigative journalist Marshall Allen discusses his latest piece on systematic waste in health care costs that companies are making a profit from.

We'll take you to a place where dying has become acceptable dinner conversation for teenagers and senior citizens alike. It's a place that also happens to have the lowest Medicare spending of any region in the country.
Far too many news outlets chose to only report on the costs of universal coverage while neglecting to mention any of the savings which would result in lower net health care expenditures.
