Robert N. Pollin and Gerald C. Friedman comment in stories about efforts to get single payer health care laws passed in California and New York, respectively

Robert N. Pollin, Distinguished Professor in economics, and Gerald C. Friedman, economics, comments in stories about efforts to get single payer health care laws passed in California and New York, respectively. Pollin argues that if California adopts a single payer system, the cost of health care for consumers will go down. Friedman also says If New York lawmakers adopt a single payer system, the state would save $45 billion per year in health care costs. (KPCC, Sacramento Bee, Fox 40, Poughkeepsie Journal, 2/7/18)
