Geyman releases ‘TrumpCare: Lies, Broken Promises, How It Is Failing, and What Should Be Done’

Friday Harbor resident John Geyman is proud to announce his new book “TrumpCare: Lies, Broken Promises, How It Is Failing, and What Should Be Done.”

Geyman wrote: “Chaos now reigns in our increasingly fragmented, dysfunctional, and unfair health care system. This book intends to make sense out of the chaos with four goals: 1) to describe what TrumpCare is, 2) to show how it is failing patients, taxpayers and the nation, 3) to describe the growing crisis in health care in this country, and 4) to compare the only two real alternatives before us – continuance of TrumpCare or moving to single-payer Medicare for All.”

He describes how Americans can gain universal access to affordable health care, with higher quality and less bureaucracy, paying less than we do now.

“This superb book is essential reading for anyone concerned about where health care is headed under President Trump. Dr. Geyman meticulously documents what the administration is doing wrong, and provides a vital road map of where we need to go from here.”

David Himmelstein, M.D., and Steffie Woolhandler, M.D., general internists, health policy experts and distinguished professors of public health at the City University of New York.

The book is available at Darvill’s Bookstore on Orcas Island, the Lopez Island Bookshop and Griffin Bay Books in Friday Harbor.
