Wealth inequality and medical expenses

Mitt Romney is campaigning on his dedication to his wife Ann during her struggle with multiple sclerosis, but critics, like The New Republic’s Jonathan Cohn, argue that unlike many Americans facing an MS diagnosis, Romney had a way to cover the medical costs involved in fighting against the disease. Cohn joins Melissa Harris-Perry – along with NYU professor Kenji Yoshino, The Hill columnist Karen Finney, and historian Doug Brinkley – to discuss his article on the topic and how the Affordable Care Act could benefit the many Americans who don’t have a way to cover medical expenses.
