Did you think the presidential debates were low on substance? We've got substance AND style today with a debate on creating a single-payer health care system here in New York. Assemblyman Dick Gottfried has been pushing the idea for years, but Bill Hammond, a healthcare expert with the Empire Center, is skeptical it will work as advertised. Both joined the podcast to explain what exactly we mean when we say "single-payer," the cost of such a system in terms of new taxes and their thoughts on the Obamacare repeal debate.
