Conn Carroll /

During yesterday’s White House press conference, press secretary Robert Gibbs was asked: “The President actually told the AMA that ‘there are some countries where a single-payer system works pretty well.’ Do you know what countries he was referring to or what he was talking about?”

Gibbs responded: “I don’t know exactly the countries. I think you could — I think if you talk to people in the countries that have those systems, they’d think their health care is pretty good.”
