Liz Seegert spoke on January 26, 2020 at the Ethical Humanist Society of Long Island about “If health care is a right, how do we pay for it?.” (Click on headphone icon in upper right corner to listen.)
We’ve been hearing a lot about “Medicare for All,” “universal coverage,” “public options,” and the right to basic health care for all Americans. The challenge is figuring out a way to pay for care for 300 million people without plunging the U.S. into even further debt, avoiding tax increases on the working poor and middle class, and figuring out a system that will save money in the long run. We took a look at some of the pros and cons of various proposals, how other countries manage to insure all their citizens, and whether there can be a fair, equitable solution for all of us.
