Single Payer Health Care

Program #SANB002. Recorded in Boulder, CO on April 23, 1994.

The health care debate is in full swing. The statistics are well known. Tens of millions of Americans have no coverage at all; many more have huge gaps in their benefits. The Clintons crisscross the country promoting their managed competition plan. Others offer varying counterproposals. One alternative is the Canadian model. Canada has a single payer health care system where costs are controlled. Single payer rids health care of private insurance companies, along with deductibles, costly bureaucracy, excessive profits and wasteful advertising. According to a Harris poll, Americans, by a huge majority, prefer the Canadian system. Yet there is virtually no media discussion of it.
