Red Kool Aid, Blue Kool-Aid

Red Kool Aid, Blue Kool-Aid tells the story of a dizzying year on Capitol Hill from the vantage point of a physician working on health care reform in the earliest years of the push to ObamaCare. While explaining the details that went into the bill’s ultimate content, the story focuses more on how the policy, process and politics surrounding the Democrats’ goal of health care reform became subjugated to the personalities attempting to promote or block the reform as well as those sidelined by illness or tax evasion. It is a cautionary tale for all those who still believe the American government works for the American people as opposed to special interests and political ideologues.
