I’ve been reflecting on how very central health care is to the most basic ethics and identity of a nation. Why its 2011 and we still have to worry about health insurance is beyond me, save for having truly evil, backwards people leading this country.
How does anyone who views access to health care as anything less than a human right gain enough trust to ascend to public office?
To think that there is such malice and ignorance in this country that we would rather deny our fellow citizens liberty from unnecessary suffering and death for the sake of a few dollars saved annually in taxes is staggering. We quite simply are not a civilized nation, and never will be as long as the opposition to meaningful health care reform dominates our land and its people.
