I agree with the previous post. Please be constructive. We live in the most prosperous nation on earth. Why shouldn't we all have access to health care. Health is the platform from which we can be more productive members of society, care for our families, and build better communities. Why is healthcare a privilege and not a right. We pay for (as a nation) anyone who does not have insurance when they are seen in an ER. Preventive care and access to routine care have already been shown to be cost effective. Why is providing insurance or access to it a burden or infringement of anyone's rights.
