“I believe that Maine and the United States have many demographic concerns that need to be addressed. One answer to our longterm fiscal and income disparity issues is a single-payor healthcare payment system. Only when our healthcare payment system is reformed can we as a state, or a nation, address our longterm healthcare needs.”
