Single-payer healthcare is a system where every citizen pays the government to provide core healthcare services for all residents. Under this system the government may provide the care themselves or pay a private healthcare provider to do so. In a single-payer system all residents receive healthcare regardless of age, income or health status. Countries with single-payer healthcare systems include the U.K., Canada, Taiwan, Israel, France, Belarus, Russia and Ukraine.

Healthcare should be nationalized

No, I prefer a standard Medicare for All
No, a universal multi-payer health care system is preferable
I have no idea how this would play out, and even what it is
It's the system that nearly every other nation in the world has, in which healthcare is paid for by the government, instead of everyone having to pay their own outrageous medical bills...
Yes, if that one person is willingly to pay for the better of humanity.
No, implement a state-level decentralized system mixed with private companies. Low income individuals should have free healthcare while those with higher wages should have their healthcare provided through their companies or indirectly through paying taxes.
No, implement a free healthcare system
No, employers should be required to provide and fully fund health insurance including dental, travel, and vision for their employees.
America should have take inspiration from West European countries for healthcare
I’d support single payer for CATASTROPHIC injury or illness.
we should be more like cannada
Yes but only pay for people with life threatening diseases or emergencies and drugs to treat it and people with pre existing conditions
Health Care should be optional and not required.
Yes but only to pay for people who need life procedures or life saving drugs or people with pre existing conditions
No, use a national healthcare system similar to Canada's.
Yes but only provide essential life-sustaining/saving medical care. cosmetic surgery/medical care will need to be self-funded
I think that the government should regulate the cost of healthcare, not pay for it. If it wasn't so expensive, this wouldn't even be an issue.
In theory yes but I don't think the US is at the stage where we can move to that system just yet
No, I advocate for market-based reforms that promote affordability, competition, and patient choice
health sector should be nationalized
Yes, healthcare is a right, and the fact that the United States has yet to implement such a system when every other advanced nation has done so is a disgrace
Yes, but it should be in competition with private insurance in order to drive down costs
Governement should watch how much their charging
Not exactly. Everyone should have access to health care but some peoples situations are more severe than others and if everyone gets the same level of care it could be disastrous,
Yes, but there should be privately owned healthcare providers as well
No, but insurance shouldn't be so high costing.
Yes, but the government isn’t using the people’s money for healthcare as efficiently as they should.
Yes, I like the idea of everyone at least trying to help out if and when they can.
No, but adopt private-healthcare vouchers for low income individuals
No, but adopt vouchers for low income individuals
I think it should be available, but there should be a public health care for people who can't afford private health care.
No, I think that universal healthcare is a better option.
Free healthcare is something a lot of Americans want. This is of course the ideal, however the way we visit the doctor and go to the hospital would change quite a bit.
