Benefits of single-payer

It was a pleasure to read Judith Atkins’ letter in the March 11 paper. Thank you, Judith. I have seen the economics review of why Massachusetts would save money as well as lives if Massachusetts goes to a single- payer health care option and it’s tremendous.

The only real reason people oppose single-payer is ignorance of the economic reality or hatred of people who can’t afford expensive insurance packages. Though why anybody would hate the elderly, the handicapped and the very young is beyond me.
