Liquid Forum Presents Idaho Health Care For All 

Wednesday, Nov. 6

Watching someone bungle a good thing can turn anyone's blood into venom. The face-palm sums it up with a self-explanatory gesture, but the core impulse is to grab the proverbial steering wheel from whoever's in charge.

That might be how Dr. Louis Schlickman feels. Schlickman is the co-chair of the Idaho chapter of the nonprofit Physicians For a National Health Program, Idaho Health Care For All, the object of which is to implement a single-payer health-care system that provides all Americans with health care paid for with tax dollars.

For him, watching the implementation of the Affordable Care Act--with its system glitches and pushing millions of Americans into the arms of insurance companies which, in his view, constitute the real threat to health care in America--is cause for a face-palm of epic proportions.

Wednesday, Nov. 6, at 5:30 p.m., Schlickman will host the Liquid Forum at (where else?) Liquid Lounge in BoDo. He'll discuss the Affordable Care Act and its implications, the state's refusal to expand Medicaid and outline his organization's own plan to improve healthcare delivery in America.
