In Single Payer Health Care You’re Just Another Government Number
“NUMBER 124. NEXT WINDOW, PLEASE.” We all dread the afternoon spent at the local DMV. Waiting for our number to be called. Watching time creep by. And when it comes to health care, Iowans want to be known by their name - and that means personalizing your health care and putting you and your doctor in charge of it.
In the ongoing debate about healthcare, you may have read about those who advocate for a single-payer healthcare system for the United States.

As we continue discussions about strengthening our healthcare system, we can agree all Iowans deserve access to affordable and quality healthcare coverage which works for them. It is a fundamental principle needed improvements are done in the right way, for the right reasons, and in the right amount of time it takes to ensure we avoid the mistakes of the past. We need to be thoughtful and deliberate and get this right.
The facts are that the current healthcare law works for some people but it does not work for everyone.
