Tea Party Patriots Action: “Single-Payer Is NOT the Answer”


Atlanta, GA – Tea Party Patriots Action Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin today responded to proposed ‘Medicare for All’ legislation set to be introduced:

“’Medicare for All’ — better described as ‘single-payer’ health care, because it does away with all private insurance and turns over all decision-making power to government bureaucrats — is not the answer for the American health-care system. It’s worth remembering that prior to the imposition of ObamaCare, 80% of Americans were satisfied with the quality of health care they received, and happy with their health-care coverage. Since the imposition of ObamaCare, premiums have skyrocketed, while deductibles have risen wildly, even as quality of care has dropped. Imposing single-payer health care would double down on the Obamacare disaster. We need to bring the free market back to health care and enhance competition and choice for patients nationwide. That will provide coverage and care Americans will be happy with, even as it helps keep costs under control.”
