Steven Brill stopped by the Center for American Progress to have a conversation on the high price of health care with Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, Vice Provost of the University of Pennsylvania (and brother of Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel and Hollywood superagent Ari Emanuel), and Dr. Giovanni Colella, CEO and co-founder of Castlight Health. Brill’s opening speech begins at the 3:45 minute mark, his thoughts on the inadequacies of the Affordable Care Act begin at minute 26, and at minute 51, Brill responds to the attacks from the left and the right on his TIME cover story, “Bitter Pill: Why Medical Bills are Killing Us.”
