Single payer would dramatically reduce wasteful administrative costs, and it has worked just fine in a number of advanced countries.Sorry, this is true only if you don't mind glossing over its severe problems. In fact, most countries with single payer rely on people buying medical care (and, frequently, medical-care insurance) beyond what the single payer system offers. This is even true in some single-provider countries.Single payer is utterly incapable of simultaneously providing quality care to everyone and controlling costs. With or without single provider.Besides, the US already has single payer - and it's the most expensive, lowest quality, part of our health-care system. On top of which, doctors are rejecting it.
