Single Payer


The Health Care section of the Platform of the Green Party opens with the following statement.

The Green Party supports single-payer universal health care and preventive care for all. We believe that health care is a right, not a privilege.

Our current health care system lets tens of thousands of people die each year by excluding them from adequate care, while its exorbitant costs are crippling our economy. The United States is the only industrialized nation in the world without a national health care system.

Below are articles and press releases detailing support for single payer from the national, state & local parties, and our candidates.
