US politicians call for nationalization of healthcare system in response to pandemic

by John R. Fischer, Senior Reporter | March 30, 2020

Masks, he says, that were once 85 cents are now $7, “because I’m competing against other states. Currently when states are doing it, we are competing against other states. In some cases, we’re savaging other states. This is just an impossible situation to manage, if we don’t get the equipment, we could lose lives that we could otherwise save if we had the equipment.”

President Donald J. Trump has resisted calls for nationalization, saying that voluntary help from manufacturers is proving effective. “We’re a country not based on nationalizing business,” he said, according to Barrons.

The prospect of nationalization is also gaining traction in other European countries, reports Reuters, with Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire considering it as a way to support big companies affected financially by the crisis.

“I won’t hesitate to use all means available to protect big French companies,” said Le Maire. “That can be done by recapitalization, that can be done by taking a stake, I can even use the term nationalization if necessary.” He made no mention of nationalizing hospitals.
