Single Payer System the Answer to Health Care Crisis

Experts are looking at Obama’s proposed stimulus package as a band-aid on a problem that will require much more extensive care to reach a cure. Some are saying that private insurance and profit driven practices are to blame for the currently soaring health care costs and the millions of people currently without health insurance. The employer based delivery system is also largely to blame, clearly evident during this time of recession and layoffs. As the rates of unemployment rise, so too do the rates of uninsureds. Many people feel that the only solution is a single-payer, government run program which would automatically enroll our nation’s citizens and be funded by progressive taxation. This universal type health care would ensure everyone had access to affordable health insurance, (HIBO) coverage and would remove much of the administrative waste and profit driven policies which leave many without access to coverage. Do you agree with this assessment?
