The False Promise of Single-Payer Health Care

A government takeover of the US healthcare system has never looked more plausible. Support for the idea is at an all-time high. Two-thirds of Democratic voters favor “single-payer” health care; even one in four Republicans is on board.

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.

Those are hardly outcomes we should consider foisting upon the American healthcare system.
