A single-payer healthcare system is the best way to ensure that all Americans have access to the healthcare they need without having to worry about paying for health insurance. It would be more efficient than the status quo at controlling costs and produce better outcomes while bringing the U.S. in line with other developed nations with single-payer systems.
A single-payer healthcare system would concentrate too much power in the federal government, creating inefficiencies in the healthcare market. It would reduce physicians’ pay and consequently the quality of care they provide, and lead to long wait lists for patients to see their doctor — all while imposing a massive tax increase on middle-class Americans.
