Last week, we spoke with Boston University professor Jon Kingsdale, who helped bring universal health insurance coverage to Massachusetts. He explained why he believes moving to a single-payer health care system is too risky.

Today, we follow that conversation with a physician who supports moving to a single-payer system. Adam Gaffney, president of Physicians for a National Health Program, explains why he supports the current Medicare for All bills that have been filed in the House and Senate, and why he feels the benefits of moving to a single-payer system outweigh the risks.
