MSNBC Anchor Ali Velshi Explains Universal Health Care, Says It's 'Possible' In U.S.
Published on Jul 6, 2017
MSNBC anchor Ali Velshi on Wednesday explained how universal health care coverage works in a segment called "For Facts' Sake," adding that such a system is "possible" in the United States. "Something that people want but is almost certainly not on the table is insurance for everyone, no matter who," Velshi said. "For facts' sake, I take a look at how universal health care is possible, and we're not just talking single payer." Velshi noted that the U.S. is the only developed country that does not have a universal health care system. "Fifty-eight countries around the globe have universal health care systems, and 34 of 35 developed countries in the world offer some form of universal coverage," Velshi said. "All of them except for one: the United States." Velshi described how a universal system would need a mandate requiring all citizens to have health insurance.
