Mingling among the doctors, nurses and activists at the single payer conferences in Chicago this weekend was one Richard Master.
Master is the owner and CEO of MCS Industries Inc., the nation’s leading supplier of wall and poster frames — a $200 million a year company based in Easton, Pennsylvania.
Master has just produced a movie — Fix It: Healthcare at the Tipping Point.
He was in Chicago to show it to the single payer advocates gathered there attending two conferences — the Physicians for a National Health Program annual meeting and the Single Payer Strategy Conference put on by nurses and other labor unions.
In a way, Master was a fish out of water — a businessman among activists.
But he had reached the same conclusion.
