Socialized Health Care Exposed (Guest: Sally Pipes)

July 26, 2018

Sally Pipes grew up in Canada under socialized health care. Now, she’s ready to spill the beans on its failures.

Pacific Research Institute President Sally Pipes knows what socialized medicine looks like having grown up in Canada. In this episode of The Heartland Institute's Health Care News podcast, HCN Managing Editor Sarah Lee talks to Pipes about what that system looks like and why she believes the far left is interested in moving in that direction via socialist candidates like New York's Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Pipes also discusses the value of SCOTUS nominee Kavanaugh as it relates to the health care landscape, what she thinks of Medicaid work requirements (hint: Kentucky's Gov. Matt Bevin got it right), and whether health care is a fundamental right.

Sally C. Pipes is president and chief executive officer of the Pacific Research Institute, a San Francisco-based think tank founded in 1979.
Sarah Lee is a policy advisor for health care and a host of Heartland's Health Care News podcast.
