“Fair Taxation and Single Payer”
presented by Robert Reinhold, attorney at law
Mr. Reinhold believes that enacting an effective and comprehensive single payer health care program will require additional governmental funding, but will save our nation money in the long run. The funding system must be a fair tax in which a heavier burden is placed on those who are able to bear a heavier tax burden than those less able to pay. Reinhold suggests taxes on inheritance, higher incomes, capital gains, dividends and financial transactions such as the purchase of stocks, bonds, futures, and real estate, rather than on food, drugs and everyday items. Reinhold will discuss how the Canadians and Europeans pay for government services like health care.
