State Public Option Reforms Reveal Folly of Gov’t Healthcare

No ‘California Dreamin’ for Single Payer Healthcare

California is dreaming about a government takeover of health insurance once again. Earlier this month, state Sen. Scott Wiener, D-San Francisco, introduced SB 770.

A Canadian Province Moving Away From Cruelty of Single-Payer

While Democrats in Washington extol the virtues of socialized medicine, Canada’s most populous province is beginning to move away from single-payer health care. Last month, Conservative Ontario Premier Doug Ford announced plans to increase its reliance on private healthcare providers. The move is a necessary response to the ongoing crisis in Canada’s ...

Canadian Leaders Finally Waking Up To The Horrors Of Single-Payer Health Care

In my last column, I wrote that Canada’s healthcare system was no model for the United States. Perhaps Canadian officials were listening. Earlier this month, Ontario Premier Doug Ford announced that Canada’s largest province would take a page from the U.S. playbook—and expand private care in order to provide some relief to the ...
