The second day of Netroots Nation opened with a discussion of health care with Howard Dean. Dean was interviewed by Tanya Tarr and Mike Lux in a town hall format. Many audience members wore hardhats handed out by the United Steelworkers Union to show support for union efforts on health care reform. During his talk, Dean referred to his new book, Howard Dean's Prescription for Real Healthcare Reform: How We Can Achieve Affordable Medical Care for Every American and Make Our Jobs Safer. Dean asked, "Who do you want controlling your health care, you or your insurance company?" He noted that insurance companies are not in the business to provide health care, but to make money. They are a reflection of the free-wheeling Wall Street culture that led to the current recession.
