I just interviewed a former Ohio Northern University professor who advocates for a single-payer healthcare system in America. As just one example, of many, he said a majority of healthcare providers in America average between eight to 20 hours a week of office time just to take care of insurance forms, and such. A single-payer system, he argues, would eliminate a lot of this type of extraneous paper/digital shuffling, if you will. While we were on the road several years ago, I interviewed Dr. Rudolph Mueller (the author of the book pictured here). He, too, advocates for a single payer system. A line from his book: “The [single-payer system] must be publicly accountable, publicly financed, locally administered, and provide quality accessible care for everyone.” Our healthcare position advocates for the essence of this, but we think that instead of being administered from D.C., it should be decentralized from county to county throughout the country. This is much more, what’s called a “distributist” orientation.
