Stella argues U.S. health care system ailing under Affordable Care Act
Republican congressional candidate Nick Stella has a message for all those advocating in favor of a single-payer health care system.
“The utopia of a single-payer system, where the government’s going to take care of everything, everything is going to be wonderful, I don’t think anyone in this room thinks the government does a great job of taking care of anything,” Stella told the Joliet Herald-News.
Stella recently posted the video of his discussion with the Herald-News editorial board on Facebook.
Running against U.S. Rep. Bill Foster (D-Illinois) in the 11th House District in November’s general election, Stella argues the U.S. healthcare system is broken and the only way it can be repaired is with a complete repeal and replacement of the Affordable Care Act.
“People that point to other countries that have socialized, single-payer health care system don’t really know much about those countries,” he said. “Go talk to any Canadian, they’ll tell you when you’re sick you may or may not be able to get care when you want or need that care.
The 11th Congressional District covers parts of Cook, DuPage, Kane, Kendall and Will counties.
