SALLY C. PIPES is president and chief executive officer of the Pacific Research Institute, a San Francisco–based think tank, and the Thomas W. Smith Fellow in Health Care Policy at PRI. She previously served as the assistant director of the Fraser Institute in Canada. She is the author of The Cure for Obamacare (Encounter 2013), The Truth About Obamacare (Regnery 2010), and The Pipes Plan: The Top 10 Ways to Dismantle and Replace Obamacare (Regnery 2012). She writes a biweekly health care column for Forbes.com.
In this Broadside, Sally C. Pipes makes the case against the single-payer system by offering evidence of its devastating effects on patients in Canada, the United Kingdom, and even the United States. Long wait times, substandard care, lack of access to innovative treatments, huge public outlays, and spiraling costs are endemic to single-payer.
