America's health care system is struggling on many fronts. We are paying more and getting less compared to many other industrialized countries. The staggering costs that cripple our current system can be explained by the patchwork for-profit payer system employed in this country. One solution is to introduce a single payer program funded by the taxes already paid into the system. By eliminating much of the unnecessary administrative costs, health care spending can reach those areas where it matters most--providing quality care to those who need it and access to preventative care.
