The New York State Legislature will hold hearings on single payer healthcare next week. Advocates say that it’s up to states to pass single payer, with the federal government aligned against it. Opponents argue that it will be a massive hit to the business community in particular.
Our guests debate the merits of single payer and the New York Health Act:
- Mike Sportiello, co-chair of the Rochester Campaign for New York Health
- Dr. Rae-Ellen Kavey, M.D., retired pediatric cardiologist
- Greg Biryla, state director of NFIB
- Michael Kracker, executive director of Unshackle Upstate
