Countries with universal healthcare have a higher life expectancy and lower infant mortality rates. Healthcare is a right not a privilege and in our country the privileged (Congress) get great healthcare while the others do not. Insurance should not be for profit and insurance lobbyists are paid a lot of money financed by our premiums. ACA is not perfect. It needs the public option put back in for the ones falling though the cracks. Other tweaks as well would be helpful if you can't bring yourselves to consider the universal health plan that is proven to be successful for the people.
