The folks at Healthcare-NOW! have put together a fantastic page of key resources related to the national debate over single payer reform, including research, opinion polls, media coverage, and fact-checking.
The grassroots movement for single payer healthcare reached a milestone during the 2016 Presidential Election season: by the end of 2015, 58% of adults in the U.S. supported “Medicare for All” healthcare reform, including a staggering 81% of Democrats, 60% of Independents, and 30% of Republicans. This almost universal support for single payer reform among Democrats allowed Bernie Sanders to run an unprecedented primary campaign advocating for single payer healthcare, while on the Republican side, front-runner Donald Trump has taken heat from opponents for his long-time support for single payer reform.
