Under our private, insurance-based system, the need to provide (increasingly expensive) health insurance to employees creates a significant obstacle to expansion and hiring. A single-payer healthcare system would eliminate this burden on employers, thus increasing business’ capacity to hire new workers. It would further stimulate local economies by keeping a larger portion of wages in workers’ hands–where they can spend it on goods and services–instead of diverting it to insurance-company profits and inflated salaries.
