Certain people are paying large sums of money to front the bald-faced lie that health care should not be available to every person in the U.S.
Time to remember why we are fighting for Affordable Health Care.
Here’s one reason: Prescription Medicine. http://prescriptions.blogs.nytimes.com/2009/09/17/harvard-medical-study-links-lack-of-insurance-to-45000-us-deaths-a-year/?_r=0
Here’s another, more personal story.
Medical indigence. Interesting term. It applies to millions of people who work more than one job. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1495228/
Here’s a look at several more issues.v http://www.healthpaconline.net/health-care-issues.htm
It isn’t a question of whether the Democrats or Republicans have the moral high ground. It’s a matter of making sure that my children can have a health care plan even when they don’t turn out to be millionaires. About 15% of Americans have no comprehensive health care, and the percentage climes each year. We start fixing it with this generation, or it will be 30% of us without a plan in the next generation.
And the politicians who tell me that it can’t be done, or that it will bankrupt the country, or that the time isn’t right, are either lying or just plain wrong. I’m voting for lying, because they are politicians, and they are moving their lips. It can be done, and it can be done by this generation.
