Associate Professor of Economics and Chair of the Department of Economics Sean Flynn critiqued Pete Buttigieg’s health care platform in an op-ed for The Hill, comparing the candidate’s proposal with two health insurance systems operating in Buttigieg’s home state of Indiana. Flynn argued that Buttigieg “appears to be completely unaware that the state of Indiana has already come up with two health insurance systems that both work much better than the single-payer variants” that Buttigieg and other candidates are espousing. Flynn’s most recent book is The Cure That Works: How to Have the World’s Best Health Care—at a Quarter of the Price.
