Hey College Republicans, Single-Payer will set Prices and Pay for Health Care! Motivating Lower Prices a Free Market Fantasy.

It's funny how something you come across earlier in the day comes up again later and oddly ties everything neatly together.

PolitiFact did a great job explaining the concept of a "single-payer" health care system. This line stood out for me, and should really be mentioned every time a Democrat talks about the issue:
