A corporate public relations executive for 20 years, Wendell Potter left his job as Vice President of corporate communications for U.S. health care giant CIGNA to become an advocate for reforming the United States' broken health care system. He is the author of Deadly Spin: An Insurance Company Insider Speaks Out on How Corporate PR Is Killing Health Care and Deceiving Americans, a critique of the U.S. health care system that examines the industry's manipulative tactics through the lens of his experience at  CIGNA.

In this video, Potter discusses how Vermont's progress toward creating a state-run single-payer health care system could be the beginning of a trend toward a health care system that prioritizes patients over profits.
