Yesterday, The New York Daily News (9/18, Lovett) reported that on Monday, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) “became the latest potential 2020 presidential candidate to come out in support of a federal single-payer health care system.” He stated, “I think that would be a good idea.” Cuomo added, “I think we’re in the eye of the storm, where it’s apparently quiet right now on health care. ... I think they’re going to move on health care reform again and there’ll be a repeal of Obamacare because that’s essential to the extreme conservatives.”
This infographic from the NAHU explains what a Single-Payer System really means. Does this seem like a good thing? Ask your friends and family who have experienced a single-payer system if it works for them when they need it most. If you're healthy, it's great (except for the astronomical taxes), if you're ill it can be a life sentence. Gov. Cuomo repeatedly uses the phrase "I think". I don't know about you, but I believe that when it comes to health insurance they better KNOW.
