Hillary Clinton prefers the Canadian Health Care single payer model, compared to others options, according to leaked transcripts of private talks she gave to Wall Street firms.

Hillary Clinton believes Single-Payer health care systems “can get costs down,” and “is as good or better on primary care.” She did lament how single-payer health care systems do impose waiting times.

“If you look at countries that are comparable, like Switzerland or Germany, for example, they have mixed systems,” Clinton purportedly said. “They don’t have just a single-payer system, but they have very clear controls over budgeting and accountability.”

Clinton argues single-payer systems like in Scandinavia and Canada offer low costs because they impose such waiting times: “Although their care, according to statistics, overall is as good or better on primary care…”

Clinton admitted: “It takes longer to get like a hip replacement than it might take here.”

Clinton pointed towards President Johnson and is success establishing medicare and medicaid. She wants the U.S. to have Universal Health Care similar to the Canada model.

“You know, on healthcare we are the prisoner of our past, she said in one speech. “The way we got to develop any kind of medical insurance program was during World War II when companies facing shortages of workers began to offer healthcare benefits as an inducement for employment.”

Hillary Clinton says since the early 1940s healthcare had been seen as a privilege connected t employment. “And after the war when soldiers came back and went back into the market there was a lot of competition, because the economy was so heated up,” she said. “And then of course our large labor unions bargained for healthcare with the employers that their members worked for. So from the early 1940s until the early 1960s we did not have any Medicare, or our program for the poor called Medicaid until President Johnson was able to get both passed in 1965.” Clinton laments how little has changed.

“…But we now have people able to get subsidized insurance,” she said. “So we have health insurance companies playing a major role in the provision of healthcare, both to the employed whose employers provide health insurance, and to those who are working but on their own are not able to afford it and their employers either don’t provide it, or don’t provide it at an affordable price. We are still struggling.”

She believes there’s been some progress, as ten million Americans now enjoy insurance who did not have it before the Affordable Care Act. “…And that is a great step forward.” Therefore, she foresees the Affordable Care Act as the choice forward.

“So we’re in a learning period as we move forward with the implementation of the Affordable Care Act,” she said. “And I’m hoping that whatever the shortfalls or the glitches have been, which in a big piece of legislation you’re going to have, those will be remedied and we can really take a hard look at what’s succeeding, fix what isn’t, and keep moving forward to get to affordable universal healthcare coverage like you have here in Canada.”
