Did you know that the U.S. spends twice as much as other industrialized nations on health care, but still has nearly 50 million people without health insurance and millions more with insurance who still cannot afford treatment?
Public Citizen is working to fix this serious problem by campaigning for the creation of single-payer national health insurance, because it is the only solution that provides universal access to care while reducing costs.
A majority of American physicians and the public support such a program, but many have questions about what exactly single-payer is, and how it would affect citizens like you.
So, we’ve put together a list of “myths and facts” about single-payer. Check them out, and pass them along to your friends.
We’re ramping up our health care reform campaign this month, so stay tuned!
