NBC's chief medical editor Dr. Nancy Snyderman said Monday that she believes "the biggest fix" to ensuring better and more affordable healthcare is more government.
"I think there should be a single-payer systems (sic)," she said on MSNBC's Morning Joe. "And increasingly, you're seeing physicians in their late fifties, sixties and seventies, who are saying, 'You know what? We got it wrong. We should have taken Medicare, expanded it, and done it smarter.'"
Dr. Snyderman also discussed how one of the primary challenges facing the Affordable Care Act - also known as Obamacare - is getting the young and the healthy to sign up. Without them, the model cannot sustain itself.
"I made my kids sign up," she said with a smile, "cause I just said, 'This is your, you know, patriotic duty.'"
Newsbusters' Mark Finkelstein commented: "Consider the implications of NBC/MSNBC choosing someone from the left-side of the spectrum as their chief voice on medicine."
