Dear Mr. Trump, About Single-PayerMay 1, 2017 |
by Sally Pipes
Single-payer healthcare is making a comeback.
A new survey by Morning Consult/Gallup finds that 44 percent of American voters support universal, government-run healthcare. Meanwhile, two California state senators introduced the Healthy California Act in February, a bill that would create a single-payer system in the Golden State.
Even some prominent conservatives are backing the idea. In a recent New York Post op-ed, for instance, F.H. Buckley, professor at the George Mason School of Law, urged President Trump to embrace single-payer.
