Liberals would like to see a single-payer healthcare system in the United States, says Yevgeniy Feyman, a fellow at the Manhattan Institute.

"The Democrats certainly would like to have a single payer. There are some Democrats that would prefer it. [President] Barack Obama probably does as well,'' Feyman told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

"Politically, it's unrealistic and they know that." [Senate Majority Leader] Harry Reid has said before that he does want it. The politics just don't work.

"But I am afraid that if Obamacare doesn't work . . . one suggestion from some Democrats will be to move towards more regulations — not necessarily single-payer, but certainly [with] constrained innovation and limited consumer choice," Feyman said Wednesday.
