Myth: Single Payer Will Cost Me More Then I'm Paying Now For Private Insurance


The majority of Americans will pay about the same or less than they are paying now.

Instead of paying premiums to a private health insurance company, most of us will pay a similar or smaller amount in taxes.

So, right now, if you are payiong $8,000 in premiums for a family of four with a $4,000 deductilbe, your yearly liability is at least $12,000.

You probably pay less than that in taxes to fund a universal single payer.

There will be no deductible.

And you can go to see any doctor or check in to any hospital in the United States.
