Arizona Dem Has a Plan

Arizona State House Minority Leader Phil Lopes, (D-Tucson) has a health plan for Arizona. It would make Arizona “the employer” to provide citizens with a benefit package similar to that of state employees.

Sounds like single-payer to me.

Lopes would cover everyone except people already on Medicare, Medicaid, and active and retired military, who get federal insurance. People over 55 who have already retired would pay a premium.

Mexico would pay the state for medical care for their citizens living in Arizona.
