The Lie of 'Single-payer'

They call it 'single-payer' health insurance.  What do they mean by that?

Well, Merriam-Webster defines it as, 'of, relating to, or being a system in which health-care providers are paid for their services by the government rather than by private insurers'.

But where will the money come from for the government to pay?

Taxes.

Who pays taxes?

Right now, about half of Americans pay taxes.

So...

It's really not 'single-payer' at all, is it?  Nope.  It's 'multi-payer', since more than one person or entity is actually providing the money to pay.

Of course, 'multi-payer' is much too honest, isn't it?

Mendacious squinches, all of them.
