The Wall Street Journal: U.S. will go single-payer route on health care: Jimmy Carter

PLAINS, Ga. — Former President Jimmy Carter said he believed the U.S. would in time adopt a fully government-run health insurance system, or “Medicare for all,” in remarks ahead of his Sunday-school class here.

“I think eventually we’ll have a single-payer system,” said the former U.S. leader, a Democrat, speaking in front of a full congregation and hundreds of visitors.

The Republican-controlled Senate is currently grappling with a GOP bill to overturn the 2010 Affordable Care Act and enact conservative health ideas in its place, with limited signs that the votes were coming together Sunday.

Carter had previously said he was disappointed the 2010 health law passed under President Barack Obama had not gone further.
