Ralph Nader on Health Care

Upon making his entrance into the 2008 presidential race, Ralph Nader claimed to be the only candidate for a single-payer universal health care system.  Nader is a harsh critic of the current health care system, which he believes wastes $350 billion a year on "needless administrative expenses."  He believes cutting down on administrative costs will give the nation the resources to offer universal health care for all citizens.  He has suggested looking to Canada as a model for adopting a better health care system.
