    •  When our health care system has only one payer (0+ / 0-)

      we will have single payer.

      Use your words any way you choose, but that is what is meant by the phrase single payer.

      •  The definition of single payer... (0+ / 0-)

        is for that group of people who have only one payer to go to...the federal government...so we have single payer for some groups in our country...you just choose to ignore that reality...
